Strong, Stanley R.
J Counseling Psychol, 17, 5, 388-398, Sep '70
This paper presents a behavioristic view of how persons acquire knowledge of their psychological characteristics and examines counseling from his framework. Persons infer underlying motivational characteristics to account for actions they assign to personal causes. Assignment of cause is based on social comparison and counseling provides such comparison. Implications for counseling are listed. (Author)
