questionnaire participating in a counseling related profession. Work satisfaction data was

obtained from each respondent by two questions of the questionnaire:

  • 1.

    “Would you say that you are enjoying your work?”

  • 2.

    “Would you say that your work is gratifying?”

The results of this analysis are found on Table 4. The two questions showed a significant

relationship to one another (r = .695, p < .01). Work enjoyment showed no significant

correlation (p = .002) with any of the NEO PI-R domain scales. There were also no

noteworthy trends identified. Likewise, there were no statistically significant correlations

between work enjoyment and the MMPI-2 clincial and validity scales scores; however,

scale 5 (Mf) of the MMPI-2 demonstrated a noteworthy trend (-.335, n = 63, p = .007).

Work gratification also showed no significant correlation (p = .002) with any of

the NEO PI-R domain scales. There were also no noteworthy trends identified. There

was a statistically significant correlation between work gratification and scale 0 (Si; r = -

.392, n = 63, p = .001). Scale 5 (Mf) of the MMPI-2 also demonstrated a noteworthy

trend (r = -.359, n = 63, p = .004).

The hypothesis that there is a correlation between satisfaction in the counseling

profession and the personality profiles of students of a seminary counselor education

program as assessed by the MMPI-2 clinical and validity scales and the NEO PI-R

domain scales is partially supported. There is a statistical significance (p .002) in the

correlation of Scale 0 (Si) of the MMPI-2 and work gratification.
