Rocznik: 2006 Tom: 12 Numer: 2
The paper presents a validation of the Proactive Scale in Transnational Career (Bańka, 2005a). The relationships of the Proactive Scale in Transnational Career to other measures demonstrate convergent validity. The validity of that scale was ascertained by correlations with other scales: Shortened version of Proactive Personality Scale (Bateman and Crant, 1993) (r=.39; with general proactivity variable r=.53), Personal Growth Initiative Scale (Robitschek, 2003) (r=.18; with general proactivity variable r=.36), the Openness Scale to Transnational Career (Bańka, 2005b) (r=.20; with general proactivity variable r=.20) and the Achieving Motive Scale in Transnational Career (Bańka, 2005c) (r=.29; with general proactive variable r=.34). There were no significant correlations among the Proactive Scale in Transnational Career and other methods. Results are discussed in terms of their relations to interactional psychological theories. Proactivity has be found to been a unique construct, as a personal and contextual ability toward proactive behavior. Proactive people are relatively unconstrained by situational forces and effect environmental change. Limitations, implications for counseling and suggestions for future research are presented in this article.
