The psychology of occupations by Anne Roe( Book )

48 editions published between 1956 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a study of the relationships between vocation, on the one hand, and personality, intelligence, and life history, on the other. The Psychology of Occupations makes the point that, within limits, occupational choice may be taken as an indication of some aspects of self-image. It explores the dynamics of this self-classification. Written from the clinician's viewpoint, the book is sufficiently broad in scope to serve readers in both the vocational and psychological fields. It presents all the available data on psychological variation among people in different occupations. It also provides a new and rewarding perspective on such matters as normative development and theory, educational theory, social background factors, and occupational choice and satisfactions. One of the book's most important features is its use of a new classification of occupations, constructed to fit psychological principles as well as as the occupational field. The classification is unique and two-dimensional, permitting an overview of the whole occupational world which is both general and precise. It makes possible the meaningful organization of data on emotional, intellectual, and social factors in people in different occupations. The new patterns which emerge open up wide possibilities for research in the field"--Jacket. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

Quantitative zoology : numerical concepts and methods in the study of recent and fossil animals by George Gaylord Simpson( Book )

15 editions published between 1939 and 2011 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The zoologist is not, and surely should not be, interested in reducing his observations or theories to a purely numerical basis simply because he likes numbers. His interest is not at all in formulas or digits, but in animals. He is concerned with the anatomy, behavior, and relationships of these animals; and he quite properly refuses to fit his studies into any a priori framework, such as that of formal mathematics or statistics. In zoology, numbers and formulas are of no interest or value for their own sake but only to the extent that they may be the best means of describing and of interpreting what animals are and do. In presenting to zoologists and paleontologists a book especially devoted to numerical concepts and containing many mathematical symbols and formulas, it is essential to state this fact at the outset and to maintain and stress this viewpoint throughout, as we have done. The symbols are merely shorthand expressions for concepts that necessarily enter into most work in zoology. The formulas are only the most convenient and usable way of summarizing operations that have logical, common-sense meanings. If in the course of using such mathematical methods these zoological, nonmathematical implications are lost sight of the zoologist will also lose sight of the whole purpose of his work and will fall into futility or even absurdity, although his arithmetic is perfectly correct. While urging and facilitating the use of numerical methods, the authors have tried at every point to guard against these grave dangers and to insist that the methods be used zoologically, not by rote and not as mathematical abstractions. If zoology and paleontology have lagged behind most other sciences in their numerical methods, a major reason has been the extreme difficulty of learning the methods that are known in other fields and of adapting them to this one"--Preface.

Graduate education in psychology; report by Conference on Graduate Education in Psychology( Book )

8 editions published between 1959 and 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a report of the Conference on Graduate Education in Psychology, sponsored by the Education and Training Board of the American Psychological Association, and held at Miami Beach, Florida, November 29 to December 7, 1958. This report is written primarily for our colleagues in psychology who were not present at the Conference but who are as personally and professionally concerned with these problems as is the Conference membership. It is written secondarily for all who are directly or indirectly concerned with the training of psychologists and the utilization of psychology. Our goal has been to convey accurately the range and concentration of sentiment at the Conference on a sizable array of complicated issues, and also to present these in the context of the present as it has developed from the past and with consideration for the possible impact on the future. This Conference is a major attempt to grapple with the significant issues in graduate education in psychology as we perceive them today. The issues were organized into five major topics: I. The Roles of Psychologists; II. The Common Core; III. Specialty Training; IV. Sub-doctoral Training; and V. Controls. In their origins and statement they represented the contributions and efforts of many individuals. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
