Abstract
I cannot help but begin this response with the admission that I stand surprised that the editor of this journal solicited comments from vocational psychologists of the stature of Steven Brown, Paul Gore, and Howard Tinsley on what I thought of as a modest methods paper. However, I have long since learned not to question the judgment of journal editors - at least not publicly or in print. I am even more surprised that this paper served as a starting point for a debate regarding the ongoing worth of the Holland RIASEC model. Despite being sorely tempted to wade into this debate myself, I will resist the urge to do so and will limit myself to responding to comments regarding the modified C index proposed in Eggerth and Andrew (2006 [this issue]). It must surely be clear to readers that the comments offered by Gore and Brown (2006 [this issue]) are far more congruent with my own views than are those of Tinsley (2006 [this issue]). Consequently, I will address Gore and Brown first.
