Abstract

The purpose of this ex post facto study was to determine what personality factors and demographic characteristics are related to acceptance or rejection of mobility training for adventitiously blind adults. The sample consisted of 79 subjects who had accepted mobility training and 60 subjects who had rejected training. The results indicated that the groups varied significantly on 7 of the 13 personality scales of the MMPI. No significant differences were found for any of the demographic variables. Different approaches to service for resistant clients are suggested.
