Written in a lively and conversational style, Experiments With People should also appeal to anyone wishing to learn more about social issues and dynamics, or keen to gain greater insight into themselves or others."--BOOK JACKET+-+9274515696324100817ocn031011850book19950.59Abelson, Robert PStatistics as principled argumentThe author delves into the too-often-dismissed problems of interpreting quantitative data and then presenting them in the context of a coherent story about one's research ... The focus of the book is that the purpose of statistics is to organize a useful argument from quantitative evidence, using a form of principled rhetoric. Five criteria, described by the acronym MAGIC (magnitude, articulation, generality, interestingness, and credibility) are proposed as crucial features of a persuasive, principled argument. Particular statistical methods are discussed, with minimum use of formulas and heavy data sets. The ideas throughout the book revolve around elementary probability theory, t tests, and simple issues of research design. It is therefore assumed that the reader has already had some access to elementary statistics. Many examples are included to explain the connection of statistics to substantive claims about real phenomena+-+637053053596417ocn003033474book19770.56Schank, Roger CScripts, plans, goals, and understanding : an inquiry into human knowledge structures+-+93864034357722ocn000000980book19680.63Theories of cognitive consistency; a sourcebook6887ocn002072243book19660.63Feldman, ShelCognitive consistency; motivational antecedents and behavioral consequents6655ocn009643216book19830.63Langer, Ellen JThe psychology of control5078ocn000475058book19640.59Pool, Ithiel de SolaCandidates, issues, and strategies; a computer simulation of the 1960 presidential electionCase studies49921ocn000239524book19640.63Pool, Ithiel de SolaCandidates, issues and strategies; a computer simulation of the 1960 and 1964 Presidential electionsCase studies49411ocn013902807book19860.70Galambos, James AKnowledge structuresFirst Published in 19863335ocn033076560book19950.63Knowledge and memory : the real story3116ocn028634415book19930.79Schank, Roger CBeliefs, reasoning, and decision making : psycho-logic in honor of Bob AbelsonIt is not unusual for a festschrift to include offerings from several areas of study, but it is highly unusual for those areas to cross disciplinary lines. This book, in doing just that, is a testimony to Bob Abelson's impact on the disciplines of social psychology, artificial intelligence and cognitive science, and the applied areas of political psychology and decision-making. The contributors demonstrate that their association with Abelson, whether as students or colleagues, has resulted in an impressive intellectual cross-fertilization993ocn002301803book19560.90Bush, Robert RMathematics for psychologists : examples and problems442ocn000616463book19700.88Abelson, Robert PCanvassing for peace; a manual for volunteers278ocn300063986book19680.47Theories of cognitive consistency : a sourcebook223ocn055218352book19870.33Schank, Roger CGuiones, planes, metas y entendimiento : un estudio de las estructuras del conocimientp humano182ocn038529059book19980.35Abelson, Robert PLa estadística razonada : reglas y principios142ocn004728407book19610.84Abelson, Robert PThe study and eventual control of juvenile delinquency through computer simulation121ocn780498253book19680.47Theories of cognitive consistency : a sourcebook112ocn780468491book19760.66Carroll, John SCognition and social behaviorConference proceedingsFirst published in 1976.

Spectral analysis decomposes the total oscillation of a time- series into oscillations of varying rates and specifies the relative contribution of each component of oscillation. Thirty-three subjects were tested on 5 task variations, and 15 were retested after a month. Reliable individual differences occurred in 3 measures: the proportion of low-frequency components in the spectrum, variance of the observations, and speed; only the first measure depended on spectral analysis. The 3 measures were related to general personality characteristics by the inductive association of factors+-+9274515696324+-+9274515696324Fri Mar 21 15:14:42 EDT 2014batch15512
