The O*NET Interest Profiler contains 60 questions, each describing a work activity. The assessment taker should be offered five possible answers, describing how they would feel about doing each type of work:

  1. Strongly Dislike
  2. Dislike
  3. Unsure
  4. Like
  5. Strongly Like

These options, and their corresponding values, are provided in the <answer_options> element. The application should record the value of each answer -- 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 -- and build a string of 60 characters containing all answers in order. This string will be used as the answers parameter for obtaining Interest Profiler results.

Each question pertains to one of six interest areas, given in the <area> element. By default, 12 questions are returned at a time. To navigate the full set of questions, use the link rel="next" and link rel="prev" elements, or provide start and end parameters to jump directly to the desired results.

The question list was last revised May 1, 2018.
