Abstract

Administered the Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory to 134 males (mean age 26.3 yrs) and 22 females (mean age 31.7 yrs) with spinal cord injury to assess Ss' vocational interests. Ss' scores were compared to the norms for men and women. Rank-order analysis indicated that males' responses showed them to be introverted and more interested in working with things than data or people. Although the smaller sample of females makes conclusions less certain, the females' responses were similar to the males'. Since the interests of these people were often incongruent with the physical limitations imposed by their disability, findings suggest that counselors must apply extra ingenuity to assist in identifying vocational alternatives.
