summary

Vocational Interest Measurement was first published in 1955. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.

Many years of clinical experience at the University of Minnesota, using the Strong Vocational Interest Bank in counseling services, form the basis for this book. The work will help other counselors to understand the meaning of the interest scores which they obtain with this test. In successive chapters, the authors discuss the meaning of work and jobs in our society, deal with the anatomy of interests, analyze interest patterns and outline a normative framework for their system of analysis, discuss personality factors as related to interests, review theories of origin and development of interests, and illustrate the use of interest measurement in counseling through a series of case studies. A volume in the Minnesota Library on Student Personnel Work.
