Geist Picture Interest Inventory
This test is widely used (nearly a million administered), especially with culturally different and educationally deprived individuals, to identify vocational and avocational interests. It requires a minimum of language because items ask the examinee to simply circle the one picture in a series of three that depicts the vocational or avocational scene he or she prefers.
The purposes of this inventory are to:
1) assess quantitatively eleven male and twelve female general interest areas;
2) identify motivating forces behind occupational choice;
3) provide an interest inventory for working with those having limited verbal abilities;
4) provide possible additional information through projective uses;
5) further research.
