Managing Personality

Managing Personality is grounded in the conviction thatscientifi c understanding of personality requires measurementin order to describe phenomena in an objective,systematic fashion and to test theories.

Metatheory in Social Science

What is the nature of the social sciences? What kinds of knowledge can they—and should they—hope to create? Are objective viewpoints possible and can universal laws be discovered? Questions like these have been asked with increasing urgency in recent years, as some philosophers and researchers have perceived a "crisis" in the social sciences. Metatheory in Social Science offers many provocative arguments and analyses of basic conceptual frameworks for the study of human behavior. These are offered primarily by practicing researchers and are related to problems in disciplines as diverse as sociology, psychology, psychiatry, anthropology, and philosophy of science. While various points of ...

For nineteen years, Starkey Duncan, Donald Fiske, and their collaborators have explored and sought to integrate the linguistic and nonverbal elements of face-to-face interaction which they view as a structured or rule-governed process. They are concerned both with the structure of interactions, described in terms of rules, signals, and other elements (analogous to grammar), and with its strategy, or interactional styles exhibited by participants within the structure. The relation between structure and strategy is similar to the relation between rules and the strategies participants adopt in games. The authors' 'structure' studies carry forward the work reported in their Face to Face Interaction: Research Methods and Tbeory (1977), while their 'strategy' studies break new ground. Their review of the current state of interaction research, its conceptual foundations and methods provides a useful framework for analysis in this new field.

  • Publisher: Routledge

Originally published in 1977. This book focuses on how to do research in the area of face-to-face interaction when studying human social conduct. It covers the methods of data collection and analysis and looks at the efficiency of these. It secondarily considers a model for conceptualising such interactions, drawing together several social science components, especially linguistics, based on the idea that there is an organisational structure at work just as with grammar for language. Overall the book proposes a general conceptual framework for guiding empirical investigation, with emphasis on simultaneous study of a number of acts viewed within each other’s contexts. This is an excellent resource for study on non-verbal communications, describing specific studies as well as offering the clear overview and model for research.

Personality Research, Methods, and Theory

Donald W. Fiske's professional life and collaborations are themselves a textbook in the development of the field of personality. From the field's early origins in personnel selection, rating accuracy, and psychotherapy outcomes, to its current status of theoretical and methodological maturity -- complete with mid-life crises -- the field has been fundamentally changed by Fiske's work, and the changes have influenced generations of scholars. This festschrift is a celebration of Fiske's impact, but not merely of his impact on the history of personality research. Instead, the volume focuses on ongoing debates and issues that have been framed or influenced by Fiske's work. The festschrift's thre...

Handbook of Psychological and Educational Assessment of Children, 2/e

The two volumes of the Handbook of Psychological and Educational Assessment of Children, Second Edition, cover all aspects of child and adolescent assessment. Leading clinical scientists summarize the state of the science of assessment paradigms, instruments, and methods.

INTELLIGENCE, APTITUDE, AND ACHIEVEMENT surveys assessment of intelligence, learning styles, and academic achievement; covers historical issues and psychometric methods; and addresses diversity issues, ethical concerns, and special topics in mental testing.
