Abstract : An attempt was made to describe and emphasize the dynamic and partially irrational character of individual development-in-vocation. The writer's concern with dynamics resulted from the discovery that several other disciplines have developed more solid conceptual bridges between observed processes on one hand and their description through static, written terms on the other. In ADDITION TO MAKING THE WRITER DISCONTENT WITH STATIC THEORETICAL REFERENTS, THESE DISCIPLINES SUGGESTED AN APPROACH TO ITS REVISION INTO THEORY WITH DYNAMIC REFERENTS. This approach has been taken with regard to both the evaluation and the construction of theory. (Author)
