Aubrey Immelman of the College of St. Benedict and St. John's University in Collegeville,
Minn. is nationally recognized for his psychological assessments of political candidates.
His profiles attempt to predict political performance and leadership effectiveness based
on personality variables. Immelman and students in the Unit for the Study of Personality
in Politics are analyzing candidates for this national election year. Times
readers get to see those assessments every Sunday until the election, and we'll compile
the profiles here throughout the election year."
Foundation for the Study of Personality in History History was once the study of great men and women and great myths. In the modern era, history turned more to political and economic forces and viewed individuals as almost interchangeable. The role of the person in history was nearly lost. The Foundation for the Study of Personality in History is devoted to illustrating the person behind the history. The Foundation has completed phase one of a major piece of research, the Personality and the Presidency Project and reports the results in Personality, Character, and Leadership in the White House: Psychologists Assess the Presidents (Brassey's 2004).
International Society of Political Psychology The purpose of the International Society of Political Psychology (ISPP) is to facilitate communication across disciplinary, geographic, and political boundaries among scholars, concerned individuals in government and public positions, the communications media, and elsewhere who have a scientific interest in the relationship between politics and psychological processes. The ISPP seeks to advance the quality of scholarship in political psychology and to increase the usefulness of scholarly work in political psychology.
