Summary
"This book is a summary of a comprehensive assessment of a group of young adults who have been members of the Fels Research Institute's longitudinal population since their birth. The potential contributions of this longitudinal investigation fall into four categories. The findings of this study point to islands of continuity amidst the changing response patterns of the growing child and suggest that some popular hypotheses about development need revision. This investigation uncovered several new and provocative ideas about developmental sequences that are not emphasized by current theorists and that deserve careful empirical attention. Finally, we attempted to test the validity of some contemporary personality assessment techniques by studying the relations between the test protocols produced by our subjects and the rich and extensive behavioral information available on each of them. There is one set of issues that this book does not presume to evaluate. The gathering of the early longitudinal data was not guided by a consistent theoretical orientation, and it is impossible, therefore, to comment on the validity of psychoanalytic or behavioral theory as they refer to cause-effect sequences in development. Correlatively, this book does not contain any elaborate theoretical integration of psychological development. We would have liked to assume this responsibility but the data prohibited such an ambitious undertaking"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
