Emotional and Personality-Related Aspects of Career-Decision-Making Difficulties
Saka, Noa; Gati, Itamar; Kelly, Kevin R.
Journal of Career Assessment, v16 n4 p403-424 2008
This research focuses on developing a theoretical framework for analyzing the emotional and personality-related aspects of career-decision-making difficulties. The proposed model is comprised of three major clusters: pessimistic views, anxiety, and self-concept and identity. In Study 1, the Emotional and Personality Career Difficulties Scale (EPCD) was developed, refined, and used to empirically test the model with an Israeli Internet sample (N = 728). Study 2 (N = 276) provided evidence for the cross-cultural validity of the proposed model, using an American college student sample. The relations between the cognitive and emotional components of career-decision-making difficulties are discussed, and theoretical, research, and counseling implications are explored. (Contains 3 figures and 5 tables.)
