Measuring and Modeling Persons and Situations (Paperback)

£115.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Measuring and Modeling Persons and Situations presents major innovations and contributions on the topic, promoting deeper integration, cross-pollination of ideas across diverse academic disciplines, and the facilitation of the development of practical applications such as matching people to jobs, understanding decision making, and predicting how a group of individuals will interact with one another. The book is organized around two overarching and interrelated themes, with the first focusing on assessing the person and the situation, covering methodological advances and techniques for inferring and measuring characteristics, and showing how they can be instantiated for measurement and predictive purposes.



The book's second theme presents theoretical models, conceptualizing how factors of the person and situation can help us understand the psychological dynamics which underlie behavior, the psychological experience of fit or congruence with one's environment, and changes in personality traits over time.

Dr. Dustin Wood has served as Personality Processes Section Editor at Social Psychology and Personality Compass, and is currently co-editing a joint special issue of European Journal of Personality and European Journal of Psychological Assessment on the topic of "New approaches towards conceptualizing and assessing personality." Dr. Stephen Read has co-edited three books (Explaining one's self to others, Erlbaum, 1992; Connectionist models of social reasoning and social behavior, Erlbaum, 1998; Computational Social Psychology, Psychology Press, in press). Dr. Peter Harms is an Associate Editor at Journal of Managerial Psychology and Research in Occupational Stress and Well-Being and has co-edited a special issue of Applied Psychology: An International Review. Dr. Andrew Slaughter is a senior research psychologist at the US Army Research Institute. His work focuses on quantitative methods for social science research and program evaluation.
