Description

Readiness for making educational and vocational choices plays a crucial role in career decision-making (Super, 1955). The present study examined (a) personality and role correlates of career choice readiness and (b) rates of change in career choice readiness measured twice over a 1-year period. A cohort of 64 high school students (28 girls, 36 boys) completed the Career Development Inventory (CDI; Super, Thompson, Lindeman, Jordaan, & Myers, 1979), the Vocational Preference Inventory (VPI; Holland, 1985a), and the Salience Inventory (SI; Super & Nevill, 1986) at the end of their freshman and sophomore years. Results supported hypothesized sex differences in CDI scores, with girls scoring higher than boys on three CDI scales. Hypothesized increases in CDI scores commensurate with grade level were not supported. Significant, albeit low to moderate, correlations between various CDI scale scores and scores on several VPI and SI scales partially supported hypothesized relationships between career development and personality and role salience.
