The purpose of this study is to determine if there is a relationship between

personality traits and vocational interests in the South African context. A

sample of 770 subjects completed the Sixteen Personality Factor

Questionnaire (16PF) and the Interest Questionnaire (INQ). The Pearsonís r

indicates a number of low and moderate correlations between the factors on

the 16PF and interest fields of the INQ. Partial correlations conducted shows

that gender and race may influence these relationships, however these were

slight changes. It is evident that a relationship exists between personality and

vocational interest but seems to be weaker in the South African context than

those found in studies conducted in Europe and the United States of America.
