ABSTRACT

This study explored the psychological effects of travel careers to identify the practical implications of the concept. The indexes of travel careers were measured at three different levels: depth, width, subjective career, and an integrated category. There were four dependent criteria variables: ego involvement of travel, seriousness in travel experience, positive psychological capital for travel, and life satisfaction. The results of the data analysis from 390 Korean samples showed that the travel career on the different indexes had significant effects on the four dependent variables. These results imply that accumulated travel experience might contribute to enhancing travelers’ attitudes and psychological capability for travel and quality of life. In the discussion and conclusion, the points for conceptualizing and measurement of travel careers are discussed for future studies.
