The Academic Focus Scale reflects your feelings toward the academic world. High scores do not necessarily lead to academic success, nor low scores to failure, but your pattern of scores reflects your degree of comfort in educational settings and can help you plan your educational strategy. High scorers are attracted to intellectual ideas, academic pursuits, and scientific research. Typical high-scoring individuals include university professors, research scientists, technical writers, and other scholars. People who score low in this area usually see themselves as more action-oriented and practical. Business people, especially those in sales and marketing, tend to score low on the Academic Focus Scales.
The Academic Focus Scales can be especially helpful if you are thinking about further education or training. They are not an indication of your intelligence or your ability, but they reflect how much you enjoy and feel comfortable with school work.
