Survey of objective studies of psychoanalytic concepts; a report prepared for the Committee on Social Adjustment by Robert R Sears( Book )

10 editions published between 1943 and 1951 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present report is a summary and appraisal of published investigations, both experimental and observational, that relate to problems and concepts deriving from Freudian theory. A further selection has been made within Freud's own theory. In order to keep the report of reasonable length, only those data have been included that relate to Freud's own theoretical formulations. A word must be said as to the quality of the data available for consideration in this survey. Much of the observational material quoted was secured by investigators whose interests had nothing to do with psychoanalysis. Their studies concerned other matters altogether, and some of them may be astonished to find their data put to the present use. Such material has been included in order to secure as complete a bibliography of relevant studies as possible"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)

The prediction of personal adjustment. A survey of logical problems and research techniques, with illustrative application to problems of vocational selection, school success, marriage, and crime by Social Science Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

9 editions published in 1941 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This monograph represents a survey of the logical problems involved in the prediction of human adjustment, with a critical consideration of basic research techniques, new and old, and with illustrative applications to the problems of vocational selection, school success, marriage, and crime. Three considerations converged to make this task seem especially timely. First, a considerable stream of new quantitative theory, as illustrated by factor analysis in psychology, has recently opened new vistas of possibilities for the improvement of instruments of measurement and the discovery of factors important in the prediction of human adjustment. Some of this new mathematical work, seemingly remote from problems of prediction, turns out to have implications which will freshen the whole approach to the prediction problem. Second, new inventions in mechanical tabulation now make possible economical statistical operations which would have been prohibitively costly a decade ago. The influence on psychology and the social sciences of new devices in mechanical tabulation parallels the influence of new mathematical techniques. Third, recent efforts to make more explicit the operations which actually go on in "intuitively sizing up people" in informal interviews and, in general, in the case study methods of research have demonstrated the urgent need of linking more closely quantitative and nonquantitative methods for improving the value and accuracy of predictions. A timely aspect of this study grows out of the need of the national defense program for a rigorous reexamination of fundamental prediction problems in the vocational field by experts freed from immediate administrative responsibilities who could bring their experience to a focus in an atmosphere of relative detachment. The monograph is in two parts. Part I is devoted to a systematic discussion and analysis of the prediction problem. It also contains, at the end, a memorandum on Prediction and National Defense. Part II comprises a number of supplementary studies, several of which make new contributions of theory and technique. While the presentation of a comprehensive bibliography, which would run into thousands of titles, was beyond the scope of the monograph, an intensive study of a considerable body of the literature was made and a special search was made for concrete illustrations of certain of the more crucial methodological points"--Foreword.

Heredity and environment : a critical survey of recently published material on twins and foster children by Robert Sessions Woodworth( )

2 editions published in 1941 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a critical survey of the methods and findings of nature and nurture research. It appraises recent studies of foster children, including studies of twins reared apart, which attacked the problem of the influence of heredity and environmental factors in intelligence and achievement. The author has analyzed with his characteristic scientific objectivity and clarity of expression the research results already achieved. He has indicated that these studies are in substantial agreement as to the indispensability of both genetic and environmental factors in mental development and has suggested further research necessary to obtain valid conclusions concerning unsolved crucial problems. He also calls attention to the importance in future studies of integrating the points of view and the methods of research from the fields of anthropology, genetics, psychology, and sociology. His analysis, it is hoped, will stimulate research that will take full account of the deficiencies and shortcomings of past studies as well as of their positive contributions to methodology. This book will be helpful not only to those engaged in research on twins and foster children but also to all interested in the role of the genetic and environmental factors in human behavior."
