5. CM–Career independence 3.51 0.56 0.52** 0.27** 0.20** 0.04    
6. CM–Relational dependence 3.33 0.59 0.53** 0.13** 0.40** 0.33** 0.13**   
7. CM–Career reference 3.30 0.42 0.28** 0.01 −0.02 −0.08 0.38** −0.02

9. Attributions of affiliation −1.84 4.93 −0.13** −0.12* −0.08 −0.05 −0.07 −0.08 −0.02
10. Future time perspective 2.74 0.36 0.54** 0.31** 0.45** 0.26** 0.36** 0.19** 0.28**
11. FTP–Behavioral commitment 2.51 0.49 0.31** 0.19** 0.26** 0.13** 0.25** 0.05 0.16**
12. FTP–Future efficacy 2.79 0.58 0.40** 0.25** 0.36** 0.19** 0.24** 0.10* 0.18**
13. FTP–Far-reach goal orientation 2.54 0.50 0.29** 0.24** 0.23** 0.03 0.28** −0.01 0.21**
14. FTP–Future purpose consciousness 2.93 0.56 0.49** 0.24** 0.45** 0.31** 0.23** 0.31** 0.15**
15. FTP–Future image 2.99 0.49 0.39** 0.13** 0.27** 0.27** 0.25** 0.21** 0.29**
  1. Note: CM career maturity, FTP future time perspective
  2. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01
  3. The negative value of mean scores of attributions indicate the degree of internal attributions. Thus, the negative correlation coefficients reflect the positive relation between internal attributions and career maturity
