She also says that marriage and family are definitely in her plans for the future, but that she wants to travel before she settles down.

This study was undertaken as part of a larger research project exploring situationally induced affective development. This particular part of the project focused on the relationship between emotional maturity and the planning styles of students. The purpose was to determine whether several personality constructs were related to the style with which people make decisions. Approximately 40 male and 40 female seniors at Boston University, selected randomly from the College of Liberal Arts and the School of Engineering, participated in this study. Also sampled were students who had shown exceptionally high promise in high school and had been awarded full scholarships at the university as "trustee scholars.".
