Ambition : how we manage success and failure throughout our lives by Orville Gilbert Brim( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in English and Chinese and held by 714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From birth to death, all humans strive for growth and mastery, and all of us experience - and must learn to handle - success and failure. How do we do it? Indeed, how do we evaluate our successes and failures when others often withhold information from us? How do we explain to ourselves and to others the reasons for our triumphs and disasters? Most important, how do we learn to manage our ambitions and develop strategies for dealing with failure and what for some people is even more difficult: success? Does the pattern change as we age? These are important questions that all of us confront every day. Drawing on the latest psychological and social research and illustrating his argument with arresting real-life examples from every conceivable social setting - school, courtship and marriage, the workplace, sports and games, gambling, and more - the author shows how we deal with winning and losing in ways that keep us at a level of "just manageable difficulty," lowering our ambitions when we lose but raising them when we win. In revealing our strategies for handling success and failure, the book demonstrates that our capacity to change across our entire lives is much greater than we used to believe was true. In addition, Brim dispels the myth of the mid-life crisis, calling it more "a useful fiction" than a reality. This wise and profound book by a leading social scientist is an important addition to the literature on life span development as well as a fascinating look at how we change

Experiences and attitudes of American adults concerning standardized intelligence tests by Orville Gilbert Brim( Book )

7 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a phase of a study of the social consequences of ability testing, a national stratified random sample of 1,482 adults was interviewed. Of the respondents, 59 percent reported at least one experience with a test of aptitude or intelligence. While they said they were relatively well informed about test results they considered such tests as less important than school or work success as indications of ability. Test experiences were more common among males, among younger respondents, and among white persons. Members of lower classes are less likely to have taken tests and their experience is in fewer contexts. Those who have a favorable attitude toward such tests tend to be better informed about tests and about their own scores. Intelligence tests are seen as measuring what is inborn, rather than what is learned, more frequently by women, by negroes, and by lower class members. The bulk of the report consists of tables showing distributions of responses. (Wo)

Midlife Development in the United States (MIDUS) : Psychological Experiences Follow-Up Study, 1998 by Elaine Wethington( )

2 editions published in 2005 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Midlife Development in the United States (MIDUS) data collection was a collaborative, interdisciplinary investigation of patterns, predictors, and consequences of midlife development in the areas of physical health, psychological well-being, and social responsibility. This component of the first MIDUS data collection was designed to understand popular metaphors of personal turmoil and change, such as the "midlife crisis," the "change of life," the "empty nest syndrome," and more. The primary objective of the Psychological Experiences Study was to explore how adults perceive psychological change in their lives. The study used questions derived from John Clausen's definition of "turning points" and other sources to collect data on self-perceived psychological changes involving work, important relationships, views about the self and dreams, beliefs about the midlife crisis, and recent major life events and transitions. This study was a random telephone follow-up of 724 respondents of the original MIDUS random-digit-dial sample. Part 1 of this collection consists of the quantitative data obtained from the telephone interviews. Part 2 includes the open-ended responses to selected questions from the telephone interviews ...

National Survey of Midlife Development in the United States (MIDUS), 1995-1996 by Orville Gilbert Brim( )

2 editions published in 1999 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Survey of Midlife Development in the United States (MIDUS) is a collaborative, interdisciplinary investigation of patterns, predictors, and consequences of midlife development in the areas of physical health, psychological well-being, and social responsibility. Respondents were drawn from a nationally representative random-digit-dial sample of noninstitutionalized, English-speaking adults, aged 25-74, selected from working telephone banks in the coterminous United States. Those queried participated in an initial telephone interview and responded to a mail questionnaire. Part 1, Main Data, contains responses from the main survey of 4,242 respondents. Respondents were asked to provide extensive information on their physical and mental health throughout their adult lives, and to assess the ways in which their lifestyles, including relationships and work-related demands, contributed to the conditions experienced. Those queried were asked to describe their histories of physical ailments, including heart-related conditions and cancer, as well as the treatment and/or lifestyle changes they went through as a result. A series of questions addressed alcohol, tobacco, and illegal drug use, and focused on history of use, regularity of use, attempts to quit, and how the use of those substances affected respondents' physical and mental well-being. Additional questions addressed respondents' sense of control over their health, their awareness of changes in their medical conditions, commitment to regular exercise and a healthy diet, experience with menopause, the decision-making process used to deal with health concerns, experiences with nontraditional remedies or therapies, and history of attending support groups. Respondents were asked to compare their overall well-being with that of their peers and to describe social, physical, and emotional characteristics typical of ...
