ABSTRACT
The aim of this study was to describe the hexagonal person-environment fit for the Holland personality types for a Greek sample of 156 university students. The statistical analysis followed both exploratory—such as multidimensional scaling—and confirmatory methods—such as covariance structure models. These methods were employed in an exploratory sense, in a descriptive attempt to portray Holland’s hexagon structure for this Greek sample. The findings of this study are comparable to the overall theory and other international samples, and also serve as a first psychometric testing of the Self-Directed Search in a Greek population.

    When multidimensional scaling solutions are used to study semantic concepts, the dimensionality of the optimal configuration has to be determined. Several strategies have been proposed to choose the appropriate dimensionality. In the present paper, the traditional dimensionality choice criteria...

    Based on the concepts of agency and communion set forth by Bakan (1966), this study includes two substudies to develop the agency and communion scale. Study 1 develops the scale through two groups of samples: one group was composed of 116 university college students and the other consisted of...

In two studies, we modeled the locations of attractive and unattractive Caucasian,...
