Relationship Between the Basic Interest Scales and the Occupational and Nonoccupational Scales on the Strong Vocational Interest Blank for Men.
Johnson, Richard W.; Schwertfeger, Margaret
The correlation coefficients between the new basic interest scales and the traditional empirical (occupational and nonoccupational) scales on the Strong Vocational Interest Blank for Men were determined for a diverse sample of 155 males. In most cases, the relationships were logical and easy to understand. In some cases, however, the relationships were unanticipated and/or primarily negative. Factors responsible for these unexpected or negative relationships were briefly discussed. Knowledge of the relationship between the two sets of scales should help counselors identify interest factors (both positive and negative) associated with high and low scores on the occupational and nonoccupational scales.
