People oriented toward this role prefer situations involving "action solutions" rather than tasks involving verbal or interpersonal skills. • INVESTIGATIVE people prefer to think rather than to act, to organize and understand rather than to persuade. They are not apt to be very "people oriented." • SOCIAL people seem to satisfy their needs in teaching or helping situations. In contrast to investigative and realistic people, social types are drawn more to seek close interpersonal relationships and are less apt to engage in intellectual or extensive physical activity.
    17. 17. INTEREST INVENTORY TEST CONVENTIONAL people don't mind rules and regulations and emphasize self-control.
