Personality and decision-making styles have a strong impact on the type of work environment in which people thrive. Eighty-eight students at The Ohio State University completed Holland’s Self-Directed Search (SDS), the Decision-Making Styles Inventory (DMI), and the Learning Goal Orientation (LGO) task. Results revealed significant positive and negative correlations between scores of specific categories in the Self-Directed Search, Decision-Making Styles Inventory, and Learning Goal Orientation measures. Specifically, positive correlations were also discovered between the categories of Investigative (SDS) and Analytical (DMI), and between Analytical (DMI) and Learning Oriented (LGO). The positive correlation between Investigative (SDS) and Learning Oriented (LGO) was not significant, thus disconfirming the hypothesis.
