AMBIEL, Rodolfo A. M; NORONHA, Ana Paula Porto  e  NUNES, Maiana Farias Oliveira. Professional interests and personality: an attempt to integrating constructs. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.2, pp. 191-201. ISSN 1677-0471.

This paper aimed at analyzing relationships between interests, measured by “Escala de Aconselhamento Profissional” and personality traits, assessed by “Bateria Fatorial de Personalidade”. 298 students from the three grades of high school took part on this study, 56,7% were women and mean age was 16,6. In general, there were correlations of small magnitude, and many of them were non-significant. Neuroticism was the factor that was least related to interests. Extroversion and Openness allowed wider interpretations, once they were significantly related to many interest areas. Agreeableness and Conscientiousness related to more specific interest areas. Data are discusses in terms of possible interpretations guided by the conjoint analysis of these constructs, especially considering psychologists who work with adolescents in Vocational Guidance.

Palavras-chave : professional interests; personality traits; five factor model of personality; vocational guidance.
