Undergraduates (56 F, 55 M), ages 18 to 21, from a small, private Mid-western university of 2,700 completed the Career Factors Inventory, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, and the Career Decisions Difficulties Questionnaire to explore the relationship between career indecisiveness and 4 personality types, lack of career readiness, inadequacy of information, and difficulty in decision making. Results identified lack of career readiness to be a better single predictor of indecisiveness than any combination of variables.
