Journal of Vocational Behavior, v31 n1 p1-13 Aug 1987
Examined validity of self-estimates of ability on a vocational interest measure (Self-Directed Search). Correlated self-ratings of 149 female undergraduates with well-validated measures of abilities corresponding to each of Holland's six interest domains. Found higher correlations between self-ratings of abilities and objective measures than for self-ratings of competencies on Self-Directed Search. (ABL)
