Historical Who is Who
1916 - 1997
Having relocated because of antipathy to Nazism, he established himself in London as a leading figure in contemporary psychology. Often judged as opinionated because of the forthright way in which he expressed his views, he insisted that these were evidence led. In contrast to psychoanalysis which he continually dismissed as theoretical fancy, he relied on data from personality tests. On these he based his notion of personality types, including introversion and extroversion. He correlated personality with generic inheritance and suggested that ‘intelligence’ was significantly determined by this source and in turn that there are racial correlations. Moral education will be weak unless it takes account of individual personality factors.
