This study examined the question of how well personality traits as assessed by the

MMPI-2 (clinical and L, F, K validity scales) and the NEO PI-R (domain scales) predict

useful post-graduation markers of success in Master’s level counselor education students.

The subjects were 74 graduates of a seminary counselor education program in the

Midwest. Participants completed the MMPI-2 (first 370 questions) and the NEO PI-R

prior to admission and a post-graduation self-report questionnaire. Significant correlation

between several personality traits and post-graduation markers of success emerged, but

after Bonferroni adjustment, did not retain statistical significance and are therefore noted

as trends (p = .05 - .003). A correlation between scale 0 of the MMPI-2 and the work

gratification item of the questionnaire retained statistical significance (p = .001).
