licensure acquisition, ongoing participation in the counseling profession, work

satisfaction, and self-perceived effectiveness. The sample for this study was a

convenience sample of individuals (n = 116) who graduated the Midwest Pastoral

Counseling Program at Ashland Theological Seminary in Ashland, Ohio in the years

2003-2006 and for whom there was archival MMPI-2 and NEO PI-R data available. A

questionnaire was sent to these graduates requesting information regarding their activity,

licensure (if appropriate), enjoyment, gratification, and self-perceived effectiveness in the

counseling profession. Seventy-four (63.8 %) completed questionnaires were returned.

A correlation analysis of the respondents’ personality traits, GPA level, and questionnaire

data revealed significant correlation before Bonferroni adjustment between: GPA and

scale 3 (Hy), scale 8 (Sc), and the L scale of the MMPI-2; licensure acquisition and scale

1 (Hs), and the L scale of the MMPI-2; participation in the counseling profession and the

Extraversion, Openness, and Agreeableness domains of the NEO PI-R and scale 0 (Si) of

the MMPI-2; work enjoyment and scale 5 (Mf) of the MMPI-2; work gratification and

scale 5 (Mf) and scale 0 (Si) of the MMPI-2; and self-perceived effectiveness and the

Agreeableness domain of the NEO PI-R. However, after Bonferroni adjustment, all but

one of the correlations did not retain statistical significance, and therefore are noted as

trends. The correlation between work gratification and scale 0 (Si) of the MMPI-2

retained statistical significance (p = .002) after Bonferroni adjustment.
