The joint issue of stability and change of interests in adolescence and early adulthood was investigated longitudinally over three years in three different grade cohorts. The patterns of structural stability, mean stability, rank order stability, and profile stability as well as how these patterns were moderated by gender were examined based on three cohorts of grades 7 and 8 (n=3191), grades 9 and 10 (n=6818), and grades 11 and 12 (n=1078) using the Personal Globe Inventory-Short (Tracey, 2010). Results indicated that adherence to the RIASEC circular model was high and stable; there was a lack of appreciable change in interest means; interests were stable; interest crystallization, profile, and pattern were stable. While the results supported late adolescence and early adulthood being a stable period for interests in general, more changes were found among male and younger students. The implication of the current study was discussed along with its limitations and suggestions for future research.
The current study investigated the joint issue of stability and change of interests over the span of middle adolescence to early adulthood using four indices: structural stability, mean stability, rank order stability, and profile stability (i.e., interest crystallization, profile difference, and profile correlation). The results of this study were expansive but the main finding was that interests were generally stable but also changing over time from adolescence to early adulthood.
