Professional interests of a psychology undergraduate students and its relation with intelligence and personality. Psicol. estud. [online]. 2004, vol.9, n.2, pp. 271-278.

This study investigated the professional interest profile of a group of freshmen in Psychology. Three instruments (LIP, 16PF and Raven - Standard Progressive Matrix) were applied in 120 subjects, aged from 17 to 38 (mean=20.1). Cluster analysis indicated the existence of three subgroups. Analysis of variance showed different profiles of interest, personality traits and intelligence. The interpretation of each subgroup profile showed some relations of the psychological characteristics of each subgroup and the common fields of work within Psychology.

Keywords : vocational guidance; professional interests; psychological assessment.
