Strong Interest Inventory Profile

HOW THE STRONG CAN HELP YOU


The Strong Interest Inventory instrument is a powerful tool that can help you make satisfying decisions about your career
and education. Whether you are just starting out in your career, thinking about a change, or considering education options
for career preparation, you can benefit from the wealth of information reflected in your Strong results. Understanding your
Strong Profile can help you identify a career focus and begin your career planning and exploration process.
Keep in mind that the Strong measures interests, not skills or abilities, and that the results can help guide you toward
rewarding careers, work activities, education programs, and leisure activitiesall based on your interests. As you review your
Profile, remember that managing your career is not a one-time decision but a series of decisions made over your lifetime.

Strong Interest Inventory Profile

GENERAL OCCUPATIONAL THEMES

SECTION 1

The General Occupational Themes (GOTs) measure six broad interest patterns that can be used to describe your work
personality. Most peoples interests are reflected by two or three Themes, combined to form a cluster of interests. Work
activities, potential skills, and values can also be classified into these six Themes. This provides a direct link between your
interests and the career and education possibilities likely to be most meaningful to you.
Your standard scores are based on the average scores of a combined group of working adults. However, because research
shows that men and women tend to respond differently in these areas, your interest levels (Very Little, Little, Moderate,
High, Very High) were determined by comparing your scores against the average scores for your gender.

BASIC INTEREST SCALES

SECTION 2

The Basic Interest Scales represent specific interest areas that often point to work activities, projects, course work, and
leisure activities that are personally motivating and rewarding. As with the General Occupational Themes, your interest
levels (Very Little, Little, Moderate, High, Very High) were determined by comparing your scores against the average scores
for your gender.
As you review your results in the charts below, note your top interest areas and your areas of least interest, and think about
how they relate to your work, educational, and leisure activities. Take time to consider any top interest areas that are not
currently part of your work or lifestyle and think about how you might be able to incorporate them into your plans.

OCCUPATIONAL SCALES

SECTION 3

This section highlights your Profile results on the Occupational Scales of the Strong. On the following pages you will find
your scores for 130 occupations. The 10 occupations most closely aligned with your interests are listed in the summary
chart below. Keep in mind that the occupations listed in your Profile results are just some of the many occupations linked
to your interests that you might want to consider. They do not indicate those you should pursue. It is helpful to think of
each occupation as a single example of a much larger group of occupational titles to consider.
Your score on an Occupational Scale shows how similar your interests are to those of people of your gender who have been
working in, and are satisfied with, that occupation. The higher your score, the more likes and dislikes you share with those
individuals. The Theme codes associated with each occupation indicate the GOTs most commonly found among people
employed in that occupation. You can review your top occupations to see what Theme codes recur and then explore
additional occupational titles not included on the Strong that have one or more of these Theme letters in common.

As you read through your Occupational Scales results on this and the following pages, note the names of those occupations
for which you scored Similar. Those are the occupations you might want to explore first. Also consider exploring
occupations on which you scored in the midrange, since you have some likes and dislikes in common with people in those
occupations. You might also consider occupations of least interest or for which you scored Dissimilar; however, keep in
mind that you are likely to have little in common with people in these types of work and probably would contribute to such
occupations in a unique way. Your career professional can guide you further in the career exploration process.
Click the name of any of the occupations in your top ten list above to visit the O*NET database (http://www.onetonline.org)
and see a summary description of that occupation. Learn about occupations by visiting reputable Web sites such as O*NET. You
can also find career information in a public library, in the career library of a college or university near you, or in a professional
career center or state or local government job agency. Supplement your research by talking to people who are working in the
occupations you are considering. These people can describe their day-to-day work and tell you what they like and dislike about
the occupation.

PERSONAL STYLE SCALES

SECTION 4

The Personal Style Scales describe different ways of approaching people, learning, and leading, as well as your interest in
taking risks and participating in teams. Personal Style Scales help you think about your preferences for factors that can be
important in your career, enabling you to narrow your choices more effectively and examine your opportunities. Each scale
includes descriptions at both ends of the continuum, and the score indicates your preference for one style versus the other.
Your scores on the Personal Style Scales were determined by comparing your responses to those of a combined group of
working men and women.

academic course work.
At times you may enjoy attending lectures or reading theory, and at other times you may prefer
hands-on practical training.
Your score suggests a preference for developing personal expertise to do a job well yourself rather
than directing others to do it.

as the president, chairperson, or teacher.

spontaneous.

that encourage risk taking and self-reliance.
