Abstract

2 experiments were devised to measure clinicans' understanding of typical case material. The prediction method was used to verify clinicians' impressions. “The results suggest that there is no direct relationship between clinical training and the ability to predict verbal behavior of an individual.” Rather, it is believed that ability to predict varies with the subject's personality, the area of personality under investigation, the kind of prediction instrument used, and the characteristics of the judge as well as his clinical training.
