The moderating effect of interest traitedness on the interest- occupation fit with career certainty relation was examined. A representative sample of from 4676 12th-grade students completed the Unisex Edition of the ACT Interest Inventory (UNIACT). Several different indices of traitedness were examined as they interacted with the interest-occupation fit with career certainty relation. A series of hierarchical regressions revealed that although all traitedness indices manifest a significant moderation effect, the magnitude of the effect was small. Results are discussed with respect to applications to other samples and variables.
