Sex-Atypical Interests and Inferred Values of Ns of One.
Diamond, Esther E.
Over the years, the responses of men and women to interest inventories have shown large differences that, in the interests of sex-fairness, have necessitated separate scales and norms for empirically built inventories. The degree of overlap between scores on male- and female-normed scales quickly identifies the individual with sex-typical or sex-atypical interests. The Kuder Occupational Interest Survey (KOIS) Report of Scores makes it possible to easily identify overlapping scores, since scores are ranked separately by norm group in a side-by-side arrangement. A number of criterion group profiles and of individual representative sex-typical and sex-atypical profiles illustrate the relation between interests and values. This relation and the implications of overlapping and nonoverlapping scores are important issues in career counseling. (Author)
