The function computes the two-letter congruence index according to Healy & Mourton (1983).

con_twoletter_holland(a, b)

`a` |
a character vector with person Holland codes. |

`b` |
a character vector with environment Holland codes. |

The function finds the congruence according to Healy & Mourton (1983) between the two-letter Holland codes given in argument a, which is the person code, and argument b, which is the environment code. The Index as defined by Healy & Mourton (1983) targets (only) two letters from the Holland code. The degree of congruence is output, according to its definition by Healy & Mourton (1983), as a reciprocal value of a distance. This means, for example, that a value of '3' is the result for a perfect fit of two two-letter codes !

a numeric with value for congruence.
