data was obtained from each respondent by a single question of the questionnaire:

Table 5. Self-perceived effectiveness showed no significant correlation (p = .002) with

MMPI-2 clinical and validity scales. There were also no noteworthy trends identified.

Likewise, there were no statistically significant correlations between self-perceived

effectiveness and the NEO PI-R domain scales; however, the domain Agreeableness

showed a noteworthy trend (r = -.253, n = 63, p = .045). Since this correlation was not

significant after Bonferroni correction, the hypothesis that there is a correlation between

self-perceived effectiveness 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 not supported. The data failed to

support this hypothesis. Thus, the null hypothesis was retained.
