Personality assessment: a critical survey by Richard I Lanyon( Book )

65 editions published between 1963 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the fifteen years since the publication of the second edition of Personality Assessment, a series of fundamental changes and far-reaching advancements has lifted this area of psychological inquiry to a new level of technical sophistication and moved the entire discipline dramatically closer to the realm of applied science. These changes include an increasing differentiation between diagnostic assessment and assessment for theoretical study, greater acceptance of traits as fundamental aspects of personality, advances in the conceptual and psychometric technology of test construction, and the rapidly growing availability of high-speed computers along with multivariate statistical procedures to interpret data. This fully updated and expanded third edition pays special attention to each of these trends, the roots of which can be traced back nearly to the discipline's beginnings. An entirely new chapter discusses issues surrounding the application of personality to the workplace, including its use in personnel selection and employment interviews, measuring leadership capabilities and assessing transformational leadership, and training and development

The structure of human abilities by Philip E Vernon( Book )

First published in 1950, this revised edition of The Structure of Human Abilities was published in 1961, but remained largely unchanged from the original save for an additional supplement on the developments in factorial work on human abilities from 1950-1959. Much research had been carried out during the years leading up to publication, in England and America, into mental abilities; and modern methods of statistical treatment, especially factor analysis, had been increasingly used. It was felt that the mass of diverse material was apt to confuse the student of psy

The psychology and education of gifted children by Philip E Vernon( Book )

22 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in English and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1977, this book looks at the problem of educating highly intelligent and gifted children, which it felt was of paramount importance to modern society. In the 1970s education increasingly focused on average pupils, and often made excellent provision for handicapped children. The authors felt it all the more important for teachers, parents and educationalists generally to be made aware of the special needs of the bright and talented, and how they could best be catered for. In this book Professor Vernon and his two co-authors discuss the provision of special facilities for the education of these children at the time, particularly with reference to the UK and Canada

Studies in expressive movement by Gordon W Allport( Book )

38 editions published between 1933 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Investigations of personality may be focused upon any one of three different levels of phenomena. The first is the level of traits, interests, attitudes, or sentiments considered as composing an "inner" personality; the second is the level of behavior and expression; the third is the level of impression, the perception and interpretation of behavior by another. Since a discovery on one of these levels establishes a presumption that the phenomenon in question has some counterpart on the other levels, a problem which is elusive on one plane may often be more expediently attacked on another. This is the motive and the plan behind the present study. Instead of approaching the difficult problem of consistency or organization in personality through a study of "inner" dispositions--which, of course, can only be known indirectly through tests and scales,--we have chosen to refer the problem to the level of expressive movement and there to examine it in a more direct fashion. Besides being expedient, this policy of referring knotty problems of personality to the field of expression has considerable theoretical justification. Unless we accept the epistemology of intuitionism, we are forced to regard our judgments of personality as inferential constructs based upon our sensory perception of expression; and to assume that it is only through our perceptions of the physical bodies, speech, or gesture of our associates that we derive any knowledge of their natures. From this point of view the direct study of expression is the most natural possible approach to the study of personality. Expressive movement in this monograph refers to those aspects of movement which are distinctive enough to differentiate one individual from another. The present study goes beyond the tradition of the psychology of individual differences; it treats the question of the agreement among individual differences, with special reference to the motor field. The discovery of well-integrated and consistent expression in the motor field would establish a presumption that similar patterning is to be expected in all aspects of personality, but it is for the future to show the exact relation of expressive movement to "inner" traits and to impression"--Introduction.
