The purpose of this study was to examine a causal model about vocational motives of college students and workers. The model assumes that behavioral inhibition/activation systems (BIS/BAS) affects vocational motives (exploratory/growth/human/status motivation) via innate/acquired resilience. We conducted online survey and analyzed data from 185 college students and 184 workers. The results showed that BIS negatively influenced resilience and growth motivation, while BAS positively influence resilience, exploratory, status and growth motivation. Innate resilience positively affected all four vocal motivations, and acquired resilience positively affected human motivation. The results implied behavioral activation and resilience are important for keeping vocational motives. We also examined effects of BIS/BAS, resilience and vocational motives on "fundamental competencies for working person".
