Attitudes of in-service teachers and office workers toward a bureaucratic work environment: a comparative study.

Vocational placement is a necessary goal for our modern educational system. Placing the right person on the right job is a matter of coordinating educational and vocational planning carefully and accurately. Personality characteristics are important in vocational planning. Various instruments are available for testing many of these characteristics. There are interest surveys and psychological, social adjustment, and temperament tests. The only aspect of personality to be considered in this study is the attitude of the individual toward bureaucratic authority. Two major reasons why this study is focused in this direction are: first, the impact of automation on our society is changing our social attitudes and values, and, second, there presently is more demand for clerical workers than for persons trained in management.
