An Introduction to Personality Study: By Raymond B. Cattell. (London: Hutchinson's University Library, 1950. Pp. vii + 235. Price 7 s. 6 d.)

Review by:
Marjorie Brierley

This book admirably fulfils the author's aim, which, he says, 'has been to bring the general problems of personality description and development, normal and abnormal, into a single perspective and to integrate the principal fields of observation in clear-cut generalizations' (p. 9). The scope of the book may be most readily conveyed by listing the main chapter headings: (I) Problems of Personality Study; (II) Inherited, Constitutional Influences in Personality; (III) Psychodynamics: I. The Rise of Normal Personality Structures; (IV) Psychodynamics: II. Further Analysis of Basic Structures and Functions; (V) Psychodynamics: III.
