Summary
"This book is a study of the relationships between vocation, on the one hand, and personality, intelligence, and life history, on the other. The Psychology of Occupations makes the point that, within limits, occupational choice may be taken as an indication of some aspects of self-image. It explores the dynamics of this self-classification. Written from the clinician's viewpoint, the book is sufficiently broad in scope to serve readers in both the vocational and psychological fields. It presents all the available data on psychological variation among people in different occupations. It also provides a new and rewarding perspective on such matters as normative development and theory, educational theory, social background factors, and occupational choice and satisfactions. One of the book's most important features is its use of a new classification of occupations, constructed to fit psychological principles as well as as the occupational field. The classification is unique and two-dimensional, permitting an overview of the whole occupational world which is both general and precise. It makes possible the meaningful organization of data on emotional, intellectual, and social factors in people in different occupations. The new patterns which emerge open up wide possibilities for research in the field"--Jacket. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
