TEIXEIRA, Marco Antônio P.  and  CASTILLO, Sergio Armando L.. Adaptation to brazilian portuguese of the O*Net Interests Profiler: Short Form. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2020, vol.22, n.1, pp. 41-63. ISSN 1516-3687.

This study aimed to adapt to the Brazilian Portuguese the O*NET Interests Profiler - Short Form. The instrument evaluates vocational interests according to the RIASEC model, which includes six types (Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional). Validity evidence was obtained through Principal Components Analysis, Multidimensional Scaling, correlations between secondary concepts from the theoretical model, and contrasts between groups. PCA results, the contrasts between selected occupational groups and correlational results between secondary concepts followed the theoretical expectations. However, the MDS results did not fully confirm the hexagonal structure. Overall results suggest the adapted instrument has acceptable evidence of validity. Further studies are suggested to increase the suitability of the Brazilian version of the instrument.

Keywords : career choice; interests; O*NET; psychological assessment; RIASEC.
