Relative Importance of Interest and Ability in Vocational Decision Making
Sharf, Richard
J Counseling Psychol, 17, 3, 258-261, May '70
Seventy six college students rated each of 100 occupations either high or low with respect to their interest and ability in each one. Pairings for specific occupations were presented to each subject in a forced choice format. Self rated interest was found to be significantly more important than self rated ability in choosing between two occupational alternatives in high, low and mixed preference choice situations.
