This book explains the 'beautiful, fascinating, and attractive' subject of psychometry...It can help a wider variety of students, researchers and consultants. The area of psychometry is taught traditionally to students of psychology and education. Widening the scope of such a book makes research in social sciences scientific and generalizable. It would be of immense use to students specializing in marketing, organizational behaviour, human resources management and other multi-disciplinary research areas.
