Abstract

After pointing out some of the practical problems associated with the identification of the neurotic worker in a workforce, two methods of identification which comply with the requirements of being both scientific and accurate, i.e. (1) clinical identification and (2) psychometric identification are discussed. The strengths and shortcomings of clinical identification, when the findings are required for industrial research purposes are contrasted with certain advantages and disadvantages of psychometric identification.

Opsomming
Sommige van die praktiese probleme in verband met die identifisering van die neurotiese werker word bespreek en twee identifiserings-metodes wat aan die vereistes van wetenskaplikheid en akkuraatheid voldoen nl. (1) kliniese identifisering en (2) psigometriese identifisering word kortliks behandel. Die tekortkominge en sterkpunte van kliniese identifisering, wanneer die bevindings vir bedryfsnavorsing benodig word, word met sekere voordele en nadele van psigometriese identifisering gekontrasteer.
