Om boka

This edition of Annals of Theoretical Psychology focuses on the utilization of statistics and the empirical nature of them as applied to psychology in action. Beginning with statements from the American Statistical Association on the applicability of statistics, the volume moves to a discussion of empiricism in psychology, and the reliance on statistics. The book then branches out to discuss applied aspects of statistics in Emergency management, policing, and technology. In these areas, a tie-in to the relevance of the person in the statistical measures is a prominent aspect for discussion. Finally, the book looks at applicability and use of statistics as descriptors of larger, societal samples as opposed to use for describing individual behavior. This edition is designed to continue the exploration of theoretical psychology as it applies to behavior and the individual, as the last edition, Leader Development Deconstructed, did with examining leaders and leadership.




"Leaders influence others. Their tools include competence, candor and character. In those first two areas I've found statisticians possess a strong foundation for leadership (critical thinking, problem solving, strategic perspective, and risk management) but often lack a comfortable, collaborative temperament which inhibits their maximum effect. In this issue of Annals, Dr. Craig Gruber (a Navy Reserve Intelligence Officer to boot!) combines all three elements of influence which proves why he is regarded as a thought leader in this field. His inclusion in this edition of outstanding works from many subject matter experts' offers an inclusive and comprehensive approach to understanding the power, impact, and decision advantage of statistics and leadership when effectively paired. Enjoy!"
