Needed Research on Psychological Processes. A Special Report of the USOE-Sponsored Grant Study: Critical Appraisal of Research in the Personality-Emotions-Motivation Domain. IBR Report No. 73-31.
Fiske, Donald W.
This task group report is one of a series prepared by eminent psychologists who have served as consultants in the U.S.O.E.-sponsored grant study to conduct a Critical Appraisal of the Personality-Emotions-Motivation Domain. In order to achieve the goal of identifying important problems and areas for new research and methodological issues related to them, an approach was followed in which leading investigators in specialized areas were enlisted as members of task groups and asked to reflect on their current knowledge of ongoing research and to identify the research needs in their respective areas. In this volume, the author (Fiske) discusses the metatheoretical, theoretical, and methodological problems involved in studying personality. He includes paradigms for research, taking account of persons, tasks, environmental settings, and occasions. (Author)
