The origin of this book is a text written by personnel of the Schools and Training Branch, Office of Strategic Services (OSS) at the end of World War II. Months of statistical calculation on the part of more than a dozen psychologists and psychiatrists went into the foundation of this book. The techniques developed are especially relevant for those engaged in assessing candidates, whether for identifying disqualifying defects of function or for determining unusual talents or abilities. This book provides a candid exploration of the first attempt in America to design and carry out selection procedures in conformity with Gestalt principles. The text particularly will invite the attention of those concerned with predicting human behavior and improving methods of diagnosis, assessment and selection.
