Allport and Vernon have considered Spranger's classification of human interests as a basis for categories in the field of social psychology. The problems of the relative importance of heredity and environment have not been satisfactorily settled using any similar basis of classification. Strong's theory of interest measurement is based primarily upon the affective supremacy in the reaction tendency systems or habit patterns. The affective and volitional elements are placed above the cognition or meaning elements.
