Abstract

SOME INTELLIGENCE AND CHARACTER One of the earliest investigations of the interview is reported by Binet. During the period in which he developed his famous individual test of intelligence, Binet had three teachers interview the same five children and estimate the intelligenee of each. Estimates were based on the results of the interview, conducted as each teacher saw fit. Each teacher was confident of his own estimates, but Binet found practically no agreement among them. Ralph F . Wagner i s assistant to the president of the American Institute for Research, and field supervisor for the Institute’s A i r Force O f i e r Evaluation Project. During 10&6-&7, he was graduate assistant in the psychology department, University of Pittsburgh. During the war he was successively personnel technician in the A i r Technical Training Command, psychological examiner in the Adjutant General’s Ofice, and auiation psychologist, A r m y A i r Forces. He received his B.A. degree f r o m Ohio State U n i versity in 1948 and i s completing work for his doctorate at University of Pittsburgh.
