One study looked at the relationship between themes on the Strong and the college majors chosen by the participants. This issue we'll look at those who scored highest on the Social scale.
Let's start with the men. The top college majors for this group were Psychology, Marketing, Biological Sciences, Political Science, Management, Administration, and Computers & Information Science.
For women, the list included Social Work, Education, Psychology, Sociology, Health & Medical Science, History, Journalism, Administration, and Literature. Interestingly, women made up the first eight and fourteen of the first fifteen spots in the list, so it would appear that in college, Social types are more frequently women than men.
As with all statistics, these results cannot predict how any one individual will respond to the Strong based on his or her major alone. It's also true that people with the same majors had different top themes on the Strong. Therefore, no one should pick or drop a major because his or her top theme on the Strong might indicate it's not as popular with the group.
