The latest version of the Strong was released in December 2004. There were a number of changes to the test questions and the resulting reports. One change was the ranking of the different professions for men and women in each general occupational theme code, according to the most and least likely to choose that theme. This issue the Conventional theme is our focus.
Let's start with the men. The occupations most likely to choose Conventional as the top theme included Credit Manager, Administrative Assistant, Actuary, Network Administrator, Technical Support Specialist, Health Information Specialist, Computer Scientist, and Mathematics Teacher. The least likely included Artist, Photographer, Graphic Designer, Medical Illustrator, Advertising Account Manager, and Musician.
For women, the list was almost identical for the most likely. The one difference was Banker, and the order was somewhat different. The least likely was same, in a slightly different order.
Of course, it's possible to have Conventional as your top theme on the Strong Interest Inventory and not like any of the above occupations. This information shows the general trend, and is not a reason to either choose or eliminate any option from your career search.
