Current and Recurring Issues in the Assessment of Intelligence and Personality

  • David F. Lohman
  • Thomas Rocklin
Part of the Perspectives on Individual Differences book series (PIDF)


In this chapter we discuss current trends in the assessment of intelligence and personality that we believe have implications for the future of these disciplines. The present, however, is always illuminated by the past; indeed, sometimes it is comprehensible only when seen in the context of antecedent events. Therefore, when possible, we identify some of the threads that tie current controversies to previous debates. Although we believe that the issues we have identified will help shape future developments, we refrain for the most part from specific speculations about the future of intelligence and personality assessment. Our reading of others’ past predictions about the future of psychological theory and research is that those that are more than simple extrapolations usually look at best charmingly naive in retrospect.
