The psychology of human differences by Leona E Tyler( Book )

64 editions published between 1947 and 1984 in 3 languages and held by 1,703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Psychology of Human Differences is a book for thoughtful students--in and out of college classrooms. Because I teach such a class each year, I have had in mind particularly the students who sign up for courses labeled Individual Differences, Differential Psychology, or Human Variability. In presenting the material, I have been constantly aware of the fact that popular opinions on the topics discussed have to a large extent been determined by factors having nothing to do with scientific research. It is rare indeed to encounter an individual who can begin the study of any one of these problems with a completely open mind. Therefore, in planning the book, I have tried wherever possible to gauge what the prevailing beliefs are and relate the research findings to these initial attitudes. I have also emphasized the methods by which dependable information can be obtained as much as the information itself, in the hope that a fundamental change in the habits of thinking about human psychological characteristics may be brought about. Persons who have undergone this training program should have a touchstone for evaluating things they hear and read in subsequent years. This aim has necessitated a thorough discussion of the basic statistical concepts, such as variability, correlation, and the significance of differences. In order to make these ideas less difficult for students, I have presented them in separate sections in connection with the research problems to which they apply, concentrating on the logic and interpretation rather than on formulas and computation, and including exercises in which the reader is given opportunity to draw conclusions from statistical results. Thus mastery of these essential skills has been brought within the intellectual range of the average college student. I have attempted wherever possible to synthesize and reconcile opposing points of view rather than to perpetuate old arguments. In each controversial area, from the all-inclusive heredity-environment issue to the highly specialized question of general vs. specific mental abilities, I have attempted to sort out the findings which stand up under critical statistical analysis from those which are in error or ambiguous, and to separate actual results from interpretations. Data surviving this sifting process often fit together much more closely than did the original conclusions of the psychologists who first presented them. It is inevitable that from such a procedure there should emerge many undecided issues and tentative conclusions as well as some established principles. In such cases I have pointed out such uncertainty and attempted to clarify the questions still remaining, in the hope that students who show research talent may thus be stimulated to begin work on significant and challenging problems"--Preface.

The national defense counseling and guidance training institutes program : a report of the first 50 institutes sponsored during the summer of 1959 by 50 colleges and universities under contract with the U.S. Office of Education authorized by the National Defense Education Act of 1958 by Leona E Tyler( Book )

4 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In September of 1958, the 85th Congress passed Public Law 85-864, the National Defense Education Act. The step had not been taken lightly. For months congressional committees had been studying alternative bills. Widespread discussion had occurred in circles where educators and the educated were represented. Many proposals had been examined and compared. Congress realized that the provisions of this law would have widespread and to some extent unpredictable effects on the whole pattern of American education. This report is an examination of the structure that was built upon title v(b) or the act during its first year. Part b authorized the establishment of counseling and guidance training institutes at colleges and universities for the purpose of improving the qualifications of secondary school personnel to engage in counseling and guidance. The authors of this report shall look first at the principles that guided the designers in their plans. They shall then turn their attention to the details of the structure itself, answering such questions as What? Who? Where? And How much? They shall then try to analyse the distinctive contributions to counselor education that this program has made. They shall grapple with the problems that were faced by the persons who planned and conducted this first round of institutes. They shall evaluate the outcomes as well as possible and try to determine how successfully the purposes of title v(b) of the National Defense Education Act have been achieved. This bulletin contains the following chapters: (1) The Broad Picture; (2) Facts and Figures; (3) a Closer Look; and (4) Looking Toward the Future. Appended are: (1) Title I (Sec. 101) and Title v, the National Defense Education Act of 1958; (2) Counseling and Guidance Training Institutes Registry Form; (3) Selected Time Schedules Representative of Institute Activities; and (4) Institutions Sponsoring Counseling and Guidance Training Institutes; Summer of 1959. Individual chapters contain footnotes. (Contains 6 figures and 7 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
Factors affecting career choices of adolescents by Leona E Tyler( Book )

2 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objectives of this project included--(1) obtaining knowledge about varieties of cognitive structures young people use in thinking about future career possibilities and determining the extent to which the life styles represented in adolescent groups are related to sex, social class, religion, nationality, and several kinds of psychological characteristics, (2) obtaining evidence regarding the construct validity of several new assessment techniques that may prove useful to counselors, and (3) facilitating the planning of subsequent research studies on the origins and consequences of different kinds of possibility structures. Several kinds of data were obtained from four carefully selected samples of adolescents in the ninth grade (or its european equivalent) from the state of oregon and the netherlands. From the samples obtained, it was concluded that dutch subjects are more aware of their total society as composed of children and adults, whereas american adolescents are more aware of their special teen-age society. In addition, dutch adolescents appeared to be aware of and familiar with significantly more occupations. (Lp)

Planned and unplanned aspects of occupational choices by youth: toward a morphology of occupational choice by Robert A Ellis( Book )

2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A major task in the present study was to develop a Morphology of Occupational Choice that would articulate the main sectors in which occupational decisions are made. These four major sectors, serving as social incentives, influence the choices youth make of their future life work: (1) the intrinsic features of the work task, (2) the extrinsic rewards of work, (3) the extra-role considerations, and (4) the perceived feasibility of the occupational goals. Each of these four sectors can, in turn be differentiated into subcomponents. In its most elaborate form, the morphology comprises 27 elements of choice. Detailed coding procedures for the morphology were developed, with parallel forms constructed for use with choice and exclusion data. Tests were made of the usefulness of the morphology for classifying the structure of what is chosen (or rejected) in occupational decisions. A significant by-product of the present inquiry was the development of a Social Time Perspective Scale that can be used for assessing the extent to which youth adopt a long-term view of the future. A final concern was the methodological issue of the compatibility of interview and questionnaire data on occupational choice and its related factors. Despite expectations to the contrary, the findings revealed fundamentally different results are yielded by the two procedures. (Author)
