Abstract


The study analyzes the relations between the manner of defining long-term objectives and the extent of their realization (academic success/failure) in the medical students of the Apolonia University of Ia?i. The investigation was developed on a group of 181 medical students of the first (Ist and IInd) years of study. For defining the long-term individual objectives, 1,267 concepts, such as: professional objectives, personal development objectives and leisure objectives, have been analyzed. The valence of the objectives was expressed as confrontation/offensive, avoidance/ defensive and neutral-type objectives. In the first stage of the evaluation, the variables considered in the analysis of objectives incidence were: age, gender of subjects and mean values of school scores. The results obtained agreed with the proposed hypotheses, according to which, comparatively with older students, the younger ones are oriented towards professional objectives of confrontation type. In a similar manner, comparatively with the less appreciated students, those with good professional results prefer professional objectives of confrontation type. Keywords: extended model of self-concordance scope objective, professional- personal development, leisure-type objectives, confrontation/offensive, avoidance/ defensive and neutral-type valencies
