Beyond Structure: In Search of Functional Models of Psychological Process.
This paper emphasizes the need to go beyond structural models of personality and intellect to develop sequential models of psychological process, particularly for such complex phenomena of prime concern to theory and application as learning, problem solving, and creativity. It is further argued that factor analysis, in a multitude of studies of cognition and personality over the past fifty years, has already delineated many relevant process variables that might serve as components in these sequential models.
