Abstract

This study examined the effect of sense of coherence on the career thought process. Sense of coherence is the global orientation that the world is comprehensible, manageable, and meaningful. A sample of individuals with disabilities completed the Sense of Coherence Scale and the Career Thoughts Inventory (CTI). Univariate tests indicate a large relationship between Sense of Coherence Scale scores and CTI-total scores and CTI-Decision Making Confusion subscale and CTI-External Conflict subscale scores and a medium relationship between Sense of Coherence Scale scores and CTI-Commitment Anxiety subscale scores. Univariate tests indicate large and medium relationships between Sense of Coherence Scale scores and individual subscale scores. The implications of the study are discussed.
