Holland's Theory and College Student Success
A recent national report sponsored by the National Postsecondary Education Cooperative links Holland's Theory with college student success. One finding suggests congruence between one's personality type and major leads to higher scores on the sets of interests, abilities, and values the relevant academic environments seek to foster and support. This makes perfect sense given the more time you spend studying an academic subject matching your interests, the greater your knowledge and skills in that area. And building your skills to match the career and jobs you're targeting increases your qualification for more job options in your field.
