Assessing the personality of an individual and the context of one’s work is a valuable

endeavor to ensure satisfaction in an occupation (Ghorpade, Lackritz, & Singh, 2007). A

counselor education program’s screening process that is concerned with assessing the

personality characteristics of an applicant may help predict success and satisfaction in the

counseling profession.

Self-report measures of personality may be useful in assessing applicants to a

counselor education program. The Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory – 2

(MMPI-2), its previous edition (MMPI), and measures of the Five Factors of Personality

(FFM) have been utilized in assessing academic, occupational, and professional roles

(Bakker, Van Der Zee, Lewig, & Dollard, 2006; Cottle & Lewis,1954; Costa, McCrae,

& Kay, 1995; DeFruyt & Merevielde, 1996; Farsides & Woodfield, 2003; Lounsbury,

Tatum, Chambers, Owens, & Gibson, 1999; Phillips,1970; White & Franzoni,1990). The

possible relationship of religious background and training with the MMPI (and MMPI-2)

has also been studied (Jansen, Bonk, & Garvey, 1973; Naus, 1973; Patrick, 1991;

MacDonald, 2000; MacDonald &Holland, 2003; Stone, 1990).

This study addressed a gap in the literature as to how the Minnesota Multiphasic

Personality Inventory – 2nd Edition (MMPI-2) and the Revised NEO Personality

Inventory (NEO PI-R) predict post-graduation outcomes of Master’s level counselor

education. The outcomes examined in this study included the final GPA of the student,

licensure acquisition, on-going participation in the counseling profession, work

satisfaction, and self-perceived effectiveness.
