The Protestant work ethic : the psychology of work-related beliefs and behaviours by Adrian Furnham( Book )

17 editions published between 1989 and 1996 in English and Italian and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Psychologists have long been active in investigating concepts integral to the Protestant work ethic - the topic is a central one in such areas as occupational, industrial, and social psychology. Here, for the first time, is a psychological account. In examining what PWE beliefs are, who acquires them, and when, Adrian Furnham gives us insights into the effects of the PWE in the work place today, as well as its future in a changing world. He explores basic psychological processes such as the relationship between attitudes and behaviour, the connection between job satisfaction and job performance, and the role of work as a central life value. He also addresses wider, more controversial issues, such as the role of the work ethic in economic development, the importance of work values in non-work activities, and the morality of attempting to manipulate work values."--Book jacket

Social situations by Michael Argyle( Book )

16 editions published between 1981 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book not only documents the authors' own studies of real life social situations, but also provides an extensive review of other literature in this field. Michael Argyle and his colleagues are particularly concerned with the practical applications of situational analysis - to social skills training, mental health and deviance, intergroup behaviour, personnel selection and consumer research. In addition, by concentrating on situational variables, the volume makes an important contribution to the study of personality, since personality-situational interaction is at least as important in determining behaviour as are general personality traits. During recent years there has been extensive criticism of the conduct of research in social psychology. Social Situations points the way forward to a resolution of the crisis in the discipline. It marks an important advance in our understanding of social behaviour which will interest social and clinical psychologists and sociologists

Lay theories : everyday understanding of problems in the social sciences by Adrian Furnham( Book )

9 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lay theories - the informal, common-sense explanations people give for particular social behaviours - are often very different from formal 'scientific' explanations of what actually happens. While they have been studied in the past, this is the first attempt to review, in detail, the nature of these beliefs. More specifically, it is the first study to consider such fundamental questions as the structure, aetiology, stability and consequence of lay theories about a range of topics. Each chapter covers a different area, such as psychology, psychiatry, medicine, economics, statistics, law and education
Personality and intelligence at work : exploring and explaining individual differences at work by Adrian Furnham( Book )

22 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Polish and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Personality and Intelligence at Work examines the increasingly controversial role of individual differences in predicting and determining behaviour at work. It combines approaches from organisational psychology and personality theory to critically examine the physical, psychological and psycho-analytic aspects of individual differences, and how they impact on the world of work." "Topics covered include the role of IQ at work as the best predictor of success, but also the importance of increasingly recognised social intelligences such as emotional intelligence (EQ). The significance of personality traits and the impact of temperaments on work performance are also examined, and the methods used to assess work behaviour and potential are reviewed. Psychological tests, which measure personality traits, are questioned as accurate predictors of behaviour at work, alongside other factors such as job satisfaction, productivity, absenteeism and turnover."
