1. The Chinese Work Personality Profile is a reliable and valid instrument in measurement of job maintenance skills and employment potential of people with psychiatric illness.
2. There are significant differences in the job maintenance skill profiles of people undergoing rehabilitation in day hospitals, day training centres, and sheltered employment.
3. Situational assessment could be useful to differentiate clients with different employment potential, and could be used as a guide for referral of clients to vocational rehabilitation settings.
