Gordon W. Allport (1) in his recent volume on "Personality" makes it very clear that psychologists are at work upon many factors, conditions, and uniformity of events related' to individuals; so that sometimes "science regards the individual as a mere bothersome accident" and is usually at work upon a "somewhat shadowy portrait." He goes on to point out that such psychological studies are not very satisfying when compared with the "living individual models" from which the data is taken. Thoroughgoing psychology cannot omit the individual at work with his intellect, motives, emotions, and his desires for personal security and efficiency.
