A NEW FACTOR ANALYSIS OF THE SVIB--SUGGESTED MODIFICATION OF EXISTING GROUPS AND IMPLICATIONS FOR COUNSELING.
SMITH, STUART E.; AND OTHERS
FACTOR ANALYSIS WAS CARRIED OUT TO ASCERTAIN THE BEST OCCUPATIONAL GROUP LOCATION FOR EACH OF FOUR STRONG VOCATIONAL INTEREST BLANK (SVIB) SCALES--VETERMINARIAN, SENIOR CPA, PHARMACIST, AND MORTICIAN. THE SVIB WAS ADMINISTERED TO 125 MALE LIBERAL ARTS FRESHMEN. MEANS, STANDARD DEVIATIONS, AND INTERCORRELATIONS WERE COMPUTED. THIS FACTOR ANALYSIS STUDY, TOGETHER WITH RESULTS FROM OTHER STUDIES, INDICATES THAT THE SENIOR CPA SCALE IS CORRECTLY PLACED IN GROUP VII. THE DATA INDICATE, HOWEVER, THAT PHARMACIST AND MORTICIAN DO NOT BELONG IN GROUP VII. THE INVESTIGATORS BELIEVE THAT THEY SHOULD CONSTITUTE A NEW GROUP, TENTATIVELY LABELED GROUP VIIIA. THEY INDICATE ALSO, THAT VETERINARIAN DOES NOT SEEM TO BELONG IN GROUP I. THEY BELIEVE THAT IT IS BETTER PLACED AS A SINGLE SCALE-FAMILY, TENTATIVELY LABELED GROUP IVA. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE AMERICAN PERSONNEL AND GUIDANCE ASSOCIATION CONVENTION (DETROIT, APRIL 1968). (CG)
