Abstract

This study examined personality characteristics of undergraduate and graduate students in rehabilitation counselling programs. Cluster analysis of 204 NEO Five-Factor Inventory (NEO-FFI) personality profiles of these students indicated a three-cluster solution as optimal. These three personality clusters were identified as the Therapist Personality cluster, Case Manager Personality cluster, and the Sensitive Personality cluster. Implications for rehabilitation job roles, rehabilitation education, and counselling are discussed.
