Abstract:

"The second edition of The psychology of normal people differs from the first edition in several respects. A considerable amount of new material including important research published during the past five years has been incorporated in the text. This new material is primarily concerned with the fields of aptitude and ability measurement, personality measurement, and evaluation, emotion, thinking, and intelligence. The experience of several years in using the book as a text has shown the desirability of certain changes in order of presentation to make the instruction more effective with beginning students. To accomplish this purpose, the two chapters on personality have been placed together following the chapter on individual differences. At the suggestion of many users of the text, the illustrations have been distributed so that each one appears near its place of reference. A continuation of the work of the authors with business and industrial men as well as with educators has amply justified and even reemphasized the soundness of the purpose of the text as stated in the preface to the first edition--to give students the insight into human nature which will prepare them for acceptable service in business, industry, and the professions"--Preface.
