Abstract:The correlation between ego identity status (identity achievement or identity foreclosure), prestige of destination occupation, and environmental congruence of 198 high school seniors was assessed. All students came from rural and urban midwestern high schools. No significant correlations were found to exist between prestige ratings of destination occupations and either ego identity statuses, levels of congruence between vocational personalities and chosen work environments, the interaction of ego identity statuses with levels of congruence, or the interactions of ego identity statuses with levels of ability. No significant gender differences were observed. Significant differences were found for levels of congruence between students in identity achievement and identity foreclosure. A significant correlation of the prestige ratings of destination occupations with levels of ability was observed for students in identity achievement. Theoretical and counseling implications are discussed, as are suggestions for further research.
