This research aimed to expand the analysis of OSOP - Object Scale of Occupational Preference, through comparison with SDS - Self Directed Search. A number of 496 high school students with an average age of 17 years took part in the study. (SD = 20.4). The correlations were significant between the Arts and Communication; Artistic, Biological and Health Sciences and Research, Entertainment and Social factors. Differences were found in gender of the realistic, social and entrepreneur dimensions, in the factors biological sciences and in health and exact sciences and agricultural sciences. These results show commonality among constructs, validity of OSOP and evidence contributions to the field of Psychological Assessment and Professional Orientation.
