Ss (a) described counselors and advisers similarly as more warm and friendly than psychiatrists who were considered more intellectual, analytic, decisive, cold, and critical; (b) viewed counselors and advisers as more appropriate sources of help with vocational and educational problems and considered psychiatrists more appropriate for specific personal problems; and (c) viewed counselors as likely sources of help for achieving personal development and gaining knowledge of strengths and weaknesses.
