The ways in which each person meets different transitions are influenced by socio-economic variables, gender, paths and individual experiences, and individual resources; moreover, these modes are related to the way in which an individual develops self-awareness, builds a planning as regards his/her own interests and objectives, builds his/her own personal identity, and deals with different tasks related to the development phase.

Abstract

The ways in which each person meets different transitions are influenced by socio-economic variables, gender, paths and individual experiences, and individual resources; moreover, these modes are related to the way in which an individual develops self-awareness, builds a planning as regards his/her own interests and objectives, builds his/her own personal identity, and deals with different tasks related to the development phase. The research is to analyze variables, such as aptitudes, interests, and interpersonal adjustment abilities as predictors of an effective process of vocational choice in adolescence. The research involves Group A, which consists of 52 girls and 41 boys (age: M = 13.45; SD = 0.50), and Group B, which includes 35 girls and 39 boys (age: M = 18.08; SD = 0.49). The results show that boys have a greater emotional stability and energy and less passive attitude than girls, who instead have a greater ability to express their emotions. Older students perceive themselves as more competent in the skills of leadership, but with a greater tendency to frustration than younger students who manifest a more pronounced aptitude irritability. Leadership ability and personal realization could be considered some of the predictive variables about interpersonal adjustment.
