Interests and specific abilities, in combination, significantly discriminated among major categories and furthermore, ability measures added incremental validity to prediction based on interest measures alone. Logistic regression analyses revealed significant differences in predictor importance between women and men. Furthermore, overall gender differences in interests and cognitive abilities were identifiable within major categories as well. Implications for career counseling are discussed.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Hell, Benedikt</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/49158/1/P%c3%a4ssler_2-1egyzu9i1tjg60.pdf"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
