Application

Assesses educational and vocational interests.
Individual interests vary widely. On the basis of the theory of Holland (1985), six basic personality orientations are measured. The test covers realistic, investigative, artistic, social, enterprising and conventional interests. This attitude and interests test has been developed for use in job & career placement.

Administration

Using a five-point answer scale, respondents state their level of interest in various activities.

Test forms

S1: Austrian form
S2: German form
S3: International form

Scoring

The following main variables are scored:

  • Practical-technical interests (Realistic – R)
  • Intellectual-investigative interests (Investigative - I).
  • Artistic-linguistic interests (Artistic - A).
  • Social interests (Social - S).
  • Entrepreneurial interests (Enterprising - E).
  • Organizational-administrative interests (Conventional - C).

The scores are obtained by summing the points relating to the relevant activities.
The interest type is also identified. The six main variables are arranged in hierarchical order, rendering the interest tendency immediately identifiable. Career suggestions and aids to interpretation that are in keeping with the interest type are provided.
