Interest In Job Content

The Interest section identifies the ideal job content for this person by identifying the human talents, called Worker Traits, which he/she brings to the job. These talents are listed in their order of motivational priority and are central to the vocational potential of an individual. Typically, what one wants to do is that which he/she is most likely to do. If it is done often enough, (including training for it) the interest will turn into real skills, and then, he/she will stay on that job.

2 Direct business contact and interaction with others:'Being with' people means gregarious association with others as an important part of vocational activity. It is assumed that additional activities are involved, such as communication, leadership, service, etc.; nothing in this worker trait gives a clue about added activity. By itself, it only means gregarious contact and association.

Direct business contact and interaction with people requiring vocational involvement and interaction with people; organizational teamwork and cooperation; enough contact, connection, sequential order or overlap of job activities to cause work linkage between persons.

High motivation indicates that this person seeks association with others socially, organizationally, and recreationally. In addition to assuring company with others, association is an important arena and environment for interacting with people in a variety of ways: leadership, managing, supervising, communicating, serving, caring, etc. Other traits have to be considered to determine how and why a high motivation indicates that this person associates and interacts with others.
Moderate motivation indicates that this person enjoys associating and interacting with people, but likes independence as well. So the activity, rather than people per se, is the deciding factor. Where mutual interest is the purpose for association, a moderate motivation indicates that this person willingly a participates and cooperates. Where interests differ, a moderate motivation indicates that this person will independently pursue those interests.
Low motivation indicates that this person shows little priority for associating with others in vocational or recreational activities. There may be a variety of reasons: nongregarious and nonbenevolent interests that involve activities unrelated to people may have a strong influence. Review of other traits may help identify why there is little motivation toward contact and interaction with others.
