An Examination of Career Indecision and Application to Dispositional Authenticity
White, Nathan J.; Tracey, Terence J. G.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v78 n2 p219-224 Apr 2011
Authenticity has been viewed as a dimension related to life satisfaction, but we propose that authenticity is related to career outcomes. In this study, we examined the relation between authenticity and career indecision. Authenticity was assessed by the Authenticity Scale and it was found to be moderately related to different indices of career indecision in a sample of 537 undergraduate university students. Results are discussed in terms of their clinical and research implications and encourage a broader perspective in conceptualizing vocational concerns. (Contains 1 table.)
