A Study of Holland's Model in Taiwan.
Tien, Hsiu-Lan; Hood, Albert B.
This paper describes a study designed to test the generalizability of Holland's hexagonal model of vocational interest structure in a Chinese culture. It was hypothesized that the results of multidimensional scaling would support Holland's hexagonal model of vocational interests. The instrument used was the Chinese Vocational Interest Inventory. Eight hundred and thirty-one college students completed the inventory and the obtained data were analyzed by the Multidimensional Scaling. The results indicated that the order of the six interest types on the two dimensional space was R-I-A-S-E-C for both males and females. Holland's hexagonal model was supported and could be used to interpret the interest structure of Taiwanese college students. (Author/EH)
