The Myers Longitudinal Medical Study. Monograph II. Final Report.
McCaulley, Mary H.
The Myers Longitudinal Medical Study is a five-stage investigation of the application of C.G. Jung's theory of psychological types to the understanding of medical student selection, achievement, and choices of specialty, professional employment and location of practice. Part I of this report describes the design and variables of the study, the participating schools, and concludes with the original report on the study presented at the 1964 annual meeting of the American Psychological Association. Part II is a comparative study of the selection, aptitude and achievement of medical students. Part III is concerned with type differences, as measured by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, in specialty choice type and manner of practice, certification by specialty boards, membership in specialty societies, geographical location, and size of community. A summary and implications of the findings are found in Part IV. (Author/GK)
