THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BOREDOM PRONENESS AND INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL WORK VALUES
Abstract:Undergraduate students (N = 111) completed the Boredom Proneness Scale (BPS) and the Survey of Work Values (SWV) as part of a study examining vocational preferences. The results indicated that individuals with high boredom proneness scores possessed significantly greater external work value scores, whereas those low in boredom proneness had significantly higher internal work values. The results are discussed in terms of their importance for career guidance, selection, and motivation strategies.
