Critical Review of Research in the Personality-Emotion Motivation (PEM) Domain, Report of A Planning Conference.
Sells, S. B.
A planning conference, held in Chicago in 1968, sought to consider purposes and goals of a proposed research review in the area of personality, emotion, and motivation, and to provide guidelines for a conceptualization of the domain. The present outline accepts as a frame of reference the conceptualization of behavior as a function of inherited tendencies, motivation, and experience, all of which contribute to individual differences, as well as of environmental settings and the context of immediate situations. The strategy that appeared most promising to the group was that of assigning small groups of outstanding contributors, currently working in fairly specific problem areas of research, to carry out the following tasks in their respective areas; (1) specify needed research and research approaches, and (2) describe specific theoretical and methodological problems related to that research. Flexibility was considered desirable to provide for any modifications of the outline suggested in the course of the reviews. The report as presented has the substantial concurrence of the Chicago panel, and incorporates most of the suggested revisions. The plan is that it be used as a basis for Phase II of the project--the actual review. (Author/CJ)
