FUTURE SITUATION AND PERSONALITY
Abstract:Expectations about the future were elicited from a class of 322 South African university students who were divided into four groups. Subjects completed a questionnaire about the near or far future and about the expected influence of either the outside situation or personality. The main finding was that subjects tilted towards the expectation that their personalities would dominate their futures, whether five or twenty-five years hence.
