Summary "The present book comprises a collection of hitherto unpublished papers which were read in Baton Rouge at a Louisiana State University Psychology Symposium, February 1958, the aim of which was to present the most recent concepts and developments in objective personality assessment. Accordingly, nationally known experts from virtually every section of the country were invited to read papers concerned with their current thinking about problems of objective personality measurement, together with a description of some of their present research and its background. The final result is considered to be an accurate representation of what leaders in the field of objective personality testing are now doing. This volume tells what many of the personality tests of tomorrow will look like and what the rationale behind them will be. There was, of course, no general agreement about personality measurement among the authors. About the only point of real agreement was that personality testing should be objective"--Preface.
