The Personal Globe Inventory (PGI) proposes a unified model of vocational interests, integrating Holland's established interest dimensions, with occupational prestige dimensions. The current study evaluates the structural validity of the PGI short form in Vietnam (N = 1140). The results of the randomized tests of hypothetical order relations support the inclusion of prestige in the PGI spherical model, as a means to better calibrate the assessment of vocational interest across cultural contexts, specifically to Vietnam. Furthermore, the results endorse the application of the abbreviated form of the PGI in a career counseling context as a time-efficient, screening method.
