Often, the career counseling process focuses on the conscious and explicit aspects of the evaluated people. The aim of this study was to develop a measure of implicit attitude towards areas of psychology and test its psychometric strength in order to provide tools to support career counseling. Two studies were conducted in different samples. It was identified that the instruments showed acceptable psychometric properties and favorable evidence of validity. It is considered that the developed IAT had acceptable psychometric properties and is a contribution to the study of career choice and career counseling, adding to the set of available techniques for psychological evaluation in this context.
