Learning and perception in psychotics, neurotics and normals
Farley, Franklyn Hoover
There have been a number of attempts in recent years to bring theories and techniques in learning, motivation and perception to bear on the psychology of personality. Representative of these attempts is the work of Bruner and Krech (1950), Dollard and Miller (1950), Eysenck (1957), Eysenck, Granger and Brengelmann (1957), Mednick (1958), McClelland (1953), McReynolds (1961), Mowrer (1950), Pascal (1959), Rotter (1954), Sears (1951), Shoben (1949), and Witkin et al (1954). Some of these attempts have been largely theoretical with little consequent research, while others have involved theorizing and a great amount of experimental investigation. The assumption underlying these integrative attempts has been that these areas, e.g., learning and personality, are related in important ways and that an understanding of each can be gained by examination and investigation of the other.
