A Multidimensional Scaling Analysis of Holland's Vocational Personality Stereotypes.
Gross, Leon J.; Farr, S. David
The perceived similarity of Holland's vocational personality stereotypes was examined using the techniques of nonmetric multidimensional scaling. Three job titles (JTs) were selected for each of Holland's stereotypes. These 18 JTs were then randomly paired. The resulting 153 pairs comprised an inventory which was administered to all students in a masters level course in educational psychology. The subjects were directed to indicate on a six-point scale how similar or dissimilar the jobs represented by each JT pair were perceived. Based on stress values, the results indicated that the JTs were seen as clustering in, at most, four dimensions. (Aurhor/MV)
