The influence of personality type on various aspects of career decision making was investigated.
Designated career choice, preferences for career role, spaciality area, practice setting, and future career goal were examined.
The study sample consisted of 215 senior clinical laboratory science students from 25 programs in six Midwestern states.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and a researcher-designed Career Preference Questionnaire were used.
Statistical analysis of the data was accomplished using chi-square, ANOVA, regression, and Selection Ratio Type Table analyses.
Study findings indicate that personality type along with other variables (sex, traditional/nontraditional student status, and university- and hospital-based program) all influence in various ways and degrees students' career preferences.
