The Geist Picture Interest Inventory.
Geist, Harold
The purposes of this inventory are to: 1) assess quantitatively eleven male and twelve female general interest areas; 2) identify motivating forces behind occupational choice; 3) provide an interest inventory for working with those having limited verbal abilities; 4) provide possible additional information through projective uses; 5) further research. The inventory is appropriate for eighth grade through adult populations. Both individual and group administrations are possible. Interest choices are non-verbal, however a check list of written statements is used to determine motivating forces. Items consist of a triad of pictures with a question concerning examinee preferences under each. The examinee must circle his preference. When all preferences are circled, the examinee must check the motivation items in the check list which are applicable to each of his choices. There is no time limit. Inventories are scored by hand; a T-score conversion table is included in the manual. Test-retest reliability studies were done on populations with wide ranges of cultural and educational backgrounds. Validity was evaluated both by correlating distributions of Inventory scores with Kuder scores, and by an empirical study. Reliability and validity tables are included in the manual. (MS)
