Jones recently developed the Career Decision Profile (CDP; 1989). The CDP assesses career indecision, how comfortable individuals are with their career-decision status, and reasons for career indecision. According to Jones' vocational decision-status model, the CDP can be used to categorize individuals into four subtypes: decided- comfortable, decided-uncomfortable, undecided-comfortable, and undecided-uncomfortable. This study investigated the personality correlates of the CDP and the utility of Jones' scale for identifying the career subtypes. The CDP subscales correlated with several personality variables in the expected directions, and results indicated some support using the CDP to categorize individuals into the four decidedness-comfort subtypes.
