"A recent study of opinion among industrial psychologists revealed a very general agreement that a course on the several fields would serve as an excellent orientation for the graduate student. While there have been several textbooks written by single authors for such a course, the editor feels that psychology is now so specialized that it is difficult for one writer to survey adequately the significant developments in all the fields. The interpretation of a field to the student can best be accomplished by a writer who is himself immersed in that field. He then writes as an intimate insider rather than as an appraising outsider. His feeling for the right emphases, unless he is a one-sided worker in that field, can seldom be matched by that of an outsider. For these and other reasons, the editor believes that the textbook for this course should be in the nature of a symposium, written by contributors who have shown by their previous writings that they are very much at home in their respective fields. The order of the chapters in this volume is somewhat arbitrary. They may be taught in almost any preferred sequence. The adopted sequence places the main theoretical fields first, beginning with the developmental approach. The chapters on differential psychology end this first section, since individual differences emerge from developmental causes, from social factors, and from causes that tend to induce abnormalities. The transition from differential to educational and clinical problems is very direct. The divisions of other applied fields and their order were agreed upon after much exchange of ideas on the part of the contributors. The more special fields of physiological psychology and aesthetics do not fit readily into the sequence of the first section on theoretical fields. The somewhat abstruse subject of points of view comes appropriately after the more concrete material, when the student is more ready to appreciate the reasons for divergent systematic approaches to psychology. The omission of a chapter on experimental psychology may seem a serious oversight to some readers. The term "experimental psychology" is losing its traditional meaning, however, as a separate and distinct field. All fields are becoming more and more experimental, and so the term is coming to refer to a method rather than a field"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)

General psychology by J. P Guilford( Book )

65 editions published between 1933 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In writing "General Psychology" the author has had in mind the typical introductory course in psychology in colleges of liberal arts. An attempt has been made to give a balanced and unbiased picture of scientific psychology as it is today. No particular school or point of view is followed, yet the significant and enduring contributions of them all are included. It is the author's personal experience that more than half the students who take the beginning course in psychology will follow it with at least one advanced course. Preparation of the student for further courses cannot, therefore, be ignored as an objective in the first course. It has never been demonstrated that the introductory course which lays the foundation for further courses cannot also serve well the needs of the student who confines his study of psychology to one course. The order of topics reverts to the more traditional, logical arrangement, laying a foundation and building upon it a more or less coherent superstructure. A minimum amount of anatomy and physiology of the nervous system is included. While many studies of student interest place the topic of sensation far down the list, the author is of the opinion that this depends very much upon the instructor and his enthusiasm for the topic. Students can be aroused to ask questions concerning their sensory powers and about sensory phenomena as they can about other topics. In spite of the established order of topics, any instructor may find that he can successfully make some readjustments to suit his own predilections. Controversial issues, including theories, have been almost entirely omitted"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
Fields of psychology : basic and applied by J. P Guilford( Book )

39 editions published between 1950 and 1963 in English and Undetermined and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Psychology has grown probably as much during the last ten years since the first edition of this volume was written as in any two or three previous decades combined. This is more true of some of its fields than of others. It is still too early to assess all the developments properly and to incorporate them into a treatment at this rather elementary level. This volume has emphasized the more enduring aspects of the fields. It is important, however, to make changes where the most significant developments have occurred. This the revising authors have attempted to do." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)

Printed classification tests by J. P Guilford( Book )

"This volume attempts to present not only a definitive account of one aspect of a vast project in vocational-test development, but also a useful record of the experiences gained in the execution of that project. To the extent that it succeeds, it will be of value not only to aviation psychologists who carry on in the service of military or civilian authorities, but also to vocational psychologists in general. While the tone of the volume is pitched to the ear of the professional psychologist, an attempt has been made to avoid the more technical jargon of the more specialized statistically minded. By confining himself to the less technical passages, the lay reader may find much that is illuminating and interesting concerning tests and test methods. Although there was no attempt, in the program to be described, to follow any preconceived ideal procedure of test development, inherent in this account is an emerging pattern of research, which, utilizing many of the techniques of the past, suggests what such a program can be when liberal support, in the form of trained personnel, suitable equipment, and an almost unlimited number of experimental subjects, is provided. Well-known test theories, and past experiences in their application, were brought to bear upon the problems of vocational selection and classification in a rather special area, though it was an area of enormous scope from a psychological standpoint. While the theoretical problem and the empirical test of a procedure always had to be subordinated to the fulfillment of a pressing practical goal, there is, nevertheless, many a finding that transcends the immediate problem and its solution. The best example of this was the utilization of factorial theory and methods. Factorial analysis, brought into use somewhat incidentally at first, became eventually the centralizing and guiding principle in connection with most printed-test development. It must be admitted that the factorial studies were neither as well planned nor as well executed as they would have been in a program that had centered around them from the very beginning. Only near the end of the four years' research did their full benefits become apparent. Rather unique to vocational-test research, also, is the inclusion of analysis of job criteria by the factorial method. It is believed that in this direction lies an economical, systematic, and dependable procedure for coverage of aptitudes and for fitting tests to vocations. In the presentation of results, efforts have been made to facilitate perusal of the chapters by the reader by means of a uniform type of description of tests"--Préface.

Creative thinking in children at the junior high school levels by J. P Guilford( Book )

11 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project investigated the factors of "divergent productive thinking" which contribute most to creative behavior. Two junior high schools were involved. One was relatively large, in a moderate-income area. The other was smaller, and was situated in a professional community. In the smaller school some 220 students were tested in two 3-hour sessions. Some subjects were dropped from the sample because their records were incomplete, resulting in a sample of 204 with a full range of ninth-grade student iq's represented. In the larger school 700 students were tested in 2-hour sessions. Eliminated from the study were any examinees who were not present for all three testing sessions, or for whom school records were incomplete. From the selected group of a sample of 229 boys and 228 girls with an iq range of 95-119 was formed. Further research should be conducted to ascertain whether abilities other than those related to divergent production can be differentiated at the junior high school level, to explore the differentiation of abilities at younger age levels, and to determine the predicitve validity of tests of divergent productive thinking.

Intellectual abilities of symbolic and semantic judgment by Ralph Hoepfner( Book )

7 editions published between 1966 and 2007 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two studies approached the problem of describing judgmental processes from the standpoint of individual differences in terms of basic traits. Based upon Guilford's structure-of-intellect model, the factors of symbolic and semantic evaluation were hypothesized to exist as distinct from one another and also from factors represented in other domains of the model. Experimental tests were developed as measures of the hypothesized factors. Measures of reference factors were also employed to demonstrate the uniqueness of the hypothesized factors. The tests were administered to 2 samples of high-school students, scores were factor analyzed, and axes analytically rotated, resulting in the demonstration of the 12 hypothesized evaluation factors and all the reference factors as uncorrelated dimensions of intellectual ability. The conclusion is that the model has continued to lead fruitfully to undiscovered, differentiable intellectual aptitudes. (Author)
