Self-efficacy in the context of career choice means how confident someone is in successfully selecting a career. Choosing a suitable career represents a complex task which requires making plans, coping with setbacks, and knowledge about oneself as well as about occupations. According to a Turkish study, androgynous high school students with both feminine and masculine personality traits were most confident in their career decision making. So called undifferentiated students with little feminine and masculine characteristics showed the lowest confidence. Self-efficacy of mainly feminine or masculine students lied between the levels of androgynous and undifferentiated students.
