Holland's Self-Directed Search (SDS) was adapted to Slovene language. The paper gives a short summary of Holland's typology, SDS description, and procedures followed in its translation, back-translation, adaptation, and psychometric analyses. A sample of 528 sophomore high-school students took SDSin 1992. Item analysis was performed and some items were discarded or changed. Descriptive statistics, interscale correlations, and alpha reliabilities are reported. Holland's hexagonal model was tested using multidimensional scaling. Disparities from the model are not greater than in most American studies. Slovene teenage sample shows somewhat different behavior of Enterprising and Conventional scales. Some proposals are given formost urgent further SDS research in Slovenia. SDS application seems easy, but the interpretation of profiles, use of norms and DHOC introduce demanding psychodiagnostic and counseling problems. It is recommended that additional interpretation of SDS (for clients needing it) should be limited to psychologists.
