Abstract


2250 students in six Latin American countries - Chile, Argentina, Mexico, Peru, Nicaragua, and Guatemala - were given the Spanish edition of the Geist Picture Interest Inventory. The three strongest and three weakest areas of vocational interest were computed for each sample. A comparison was made of the vocational interests at both the high school level in all countries, and in Chile, Peru, and Nicaragua at the university level. It was found that there were great similarities of interest in all countries. Reasons were given for the results obtained.
