CHAPTER 12
The Classification
of Occupations (Continued)

IN THIS CHAPTER we shall review the studies which cover a wide range of occupations or of occupational levels, in order to gain some over-all glimpse of the personal differences associated with the different categories in the classification. The many studies of one or only a few occupational groups are not discussed in this chapter but will be considered in the following chapters in the appropriate Group. Intelligence, education, and socio-economic status are much more closely related to Level than they are to Group. On the other hand such aspects of personality as interests and attitudes, and others less well studied, are more closely related to Group than to Level.

The data on all these issues are far fewer than are needed for more than a tentative formulation of general relationships. In part this has been the result of lack of a psychological classification of occupations. In larger part it is because one worker almost never has access
