model as an integrative framework for individual differences.
Consistency addresses the similarity between the types represented by a single RIASEC
code and is determined by the location of the types on the RIASEC
hexagon (Holland, Powell, & Fritzsche, 1994).
To address this problem, current practice uses a variety of assessment vehicles to evaluate numerically each person, each environment, and each vocation, relative to all six RIASEC
But our results do not suggest that IT careers are inconsistent with higher scores on those RIASEC
dimensions--artistic, social, and conventional--on which women tend to score higher than men.
Frequently referred to as the RIASEC
model, Holland's theory maintains that there are six basic vocational types that correspond to six occupational environments: Realistic (R), Investigative (I), Artistic (A), Social (S), Enterprising (E), and Conventional (C).

She then grouped occupational titles by RIASEC
type and then found the mean and standard deviation for sex type and social prestige for each of these types (see Figure 1).
The interest areas described by the CDM and RIASEC
fides are: crafts (realistic), scientific (investigative), the arts (artistic), social (social), business (enterprising), and office operations (conventional).

Adolescents across the five years of high school (169 females and 164 males) completed a survey that identified occupational status aspirations and expectations coded into six types--realistic, investigative, artistic, social, enterprising, or conventional--according to the RIASEC
model (Holland, 1997).
The CDM-R uses the RIASEC
(Holland, 1997) system in classifying occupations, thus establishing compatibility with a model for grouping occupations that has been widely adopted.
The STEM Careers Inventory (Shatkin, 2011b) provides a self-directed assessment using Holland's (1959) RIASEC
(Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, Conventional) codes to help individuals identify and explore STEM fields.
