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 Enterprising theme is our focus.
Let's start with the men. The occupations most likely to choose Enterprising as the top theme included Sales Manager, Restaurant Manager, Purchasing Agent, Realtor, Technical Sales Representative, Operations Manager, and Travel Consultant. The least likely included University Professor, Artist, Physician, Medical Illustrator, Biologist, and Forester.
For women, the list was identical for the most likely. The least likely had one difference: Geologist instead of Medical Illustrator in the top six.
Of course, it's possible to have Enterprising 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.
