Proactive personality and attributions: Study of 12th grade vocational students’ career decision self-efficacy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Previous studies have found that proactive personality and attributions influence Career Decision Self-efficacy (CDSE). However, there has not been any study conducted to compare the two variables specifically with 12th-grade vocational school students. Thus, the purpose of this study is to broaden previous studies by looking at how proactive personality and attributions affect the CDSE of 12th-grade vocational school students and see which variables have a greater influence on CDSE. A total of 858 12th-grade vocational school students filled out a CDSE scale - short form (CDSES-SF) questionnaire, Proactive Personality Scale (PPS) - short version, and assessment of attributions for career decision making (AACDM). The result of this study showed that proactive personality has a greater influence on CDSE than attributions when tested simultaneously. The result of this study has practical implications for developing intervention programs for vocational school students.
