Use of Basic Interest Scales in Interpreting SVIB-W Occupational and Nonoccupational Scores.
Johnson, Richard W.
For a heterogeneous sample, the correlation coefficients between the Basic Interest Scales and the Occupational Scales and between the Basic Interest Scales and the Nonoccupational Scales of the Strong Vocational Interest Bland for Women (SVIB-W) are presented. Although the pattern of intercorrelations may be somewhat different for other samples, this sample is quite similar to that upon which the Basic Interest Scales were normed. The high positive and low negative correlations are listed separately so that a counselor may easily identify those basic interests which are probably contributing most significantly to the scores on the Occupational Scales. It is noted that some seemingly logical relationships between the Basic Interest and Occupational Scales did not occur. The use of the correlation coefficients by a counselor is illustrated. (DG)
