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.
