STILURILE DE LUARE A DECIZIEI ȘI TOLERANȚA LA INCERTITUDINE LA STUDENȚI

Galina PRAVIȚCHI, Arcadie BOTNARU

Abstract


Cercetarea mecanismelor psihologice implicate în luarea de decizii pe plan academic în rândul studenților prezintă o actualitate deosebită în contextul crizei demografice din Republica Moldova, dar și al solicitărilor schimbătoare ale pieței muncii la nivel mondial. Complexitatea subiectului rezidă în existența unui număr larg de trăsături individuale și de context care influențează procesul decizional. Stilul de luare a deciziei și toleranța la incertitudine sunt printre mecanismele care ocupă un loc central în construcția personalității individului. Rolul acestora se evidențiază în special atunci când ne referim la proiecte personale și la decizii definitorii pentru identitatea studentului, precum alegerea domeniului de studiu sau a orientării în carieră.

 

DECISION-MAKING STYLES AND TOLERANCE TO UNCERTAINTY IN STUDENTS

The assessment of the psychological mechanisms involved in the academic decision-making among students is especially important in the context of the current demographic problem in the Republic of Moldova as well as current global labor market trends. The complexity of the subject matter is reflected in various individual and context-related factors that influence the decision-making process. Thus, decision-making styles and the tolerance to uncertainty occupy a central position in the individual’s personality construction. The impact of the two is especially visible when we refer to personal projects and decisions that have a defining role for student’s identity, such as choosing the field of studies or career orientation.
