Abstract: Objectives: Holland’s Hexagonal Theory had only been extensively tested in the West, and for this reason, this study investigated the applicability of Holland’s Model in Hong Kong. In particular, it examined (1) the environment’s classification that reflects the population in Hong Kong, (2) the relationship between three different congruence index measurements, and (3) the correlation between congruence and job satisfaction. Methods: The subjects were 70 registered nurse and 80 secondary school teacher. The Holland Personality Codes was identified by applying the Self-Directed Search (Form E). Environmental Assessment Technique (EAT) was used to identify the Occupational Codes of the sub-environment in Hong Kong. Moreover, Z-S index, C-index, and K-P index were used to measure the congruence indices. Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire was used to measure subjects’ job satisfaction in both intrinsic and extrinsic dimensions. Results: Major findings included: (1) identifying the sub-environment by EAT was important, (2) the correlations between congruence indices and job satisfaction yielded mixed results, and (3) job satisfaction might be confounded by other factors. Discussion: Future study may use new congruence index measurements and may focus on studying specific occupations.
