Can drop-out rates be related to MBTI Type? - The Case of "Drop-out Danny"

Bookmark and Share

Our fourth and last article in CPP’s series of assessment case study discussions by Judith Grutter, focusing on strategies for assessment interpretation using the Strong and MBTI® Career Report, is about Danny. Danny is one of the 40+ percent of college and university freshmen who are likely to drop out before graduating. Ms. Grutter explores why this is the case and how it might be related to MBTI® type.

School was never easy for Danny. He didn’t think much about college. His parents didn’t go beyond high school and never really talked much about “career” or work that might require higher education. In fact his father dropped out of school in tenth grade. He has always provided well for his family, and doesn’t really see why Danny needs college. He says that Danny is “a strong boy and good with his hands. He can always earn a living.” Read the complete case study and download supporting materials.
