    Alfred Adler was not a man driven mad by ambition, nor was he a terrorist. Individual psychology, a construction of Alfred Adler, rests heavily on the notion of social interest presenting an optimistic view of the individual. It is differences such as the optimistic outlook of the individual of Adler that create a tenuous relationship between Adler and Freud.

    One may view industrial/organizational psychology as the merger of industry, organization, and its relation to psychology. Industrial relates to industry, referencing, “the economic activity concerned with the processing of raw materials and manufacture of goods in factories.” The organization is “an organized body of people with a particular purpose, especially a business, society, or association.” Psychology represents the scientific study of behavior and mind. Industrial/organizational psychology is the merger of these three entities into a single scientific discipline.

    The job of human resources management is to hire the best and most capable individuals in terms of job performance. This job may have become more difficult with the advent of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 stating in no manner shall one be denied employment basing upon race or sex. The selection process now may not base strictly upon performance, yet upon other criteria resulting at times in a less efficient workforce. This is the result of a quota system and lower testing cutoff scores to accommodate the Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures.

    The Case of Daniel Paul Schreber: Paranoid Schizophrenia documents the rise and fall of Daniel Schreber, from his appointing to the Supreme Court of judges to his long-term commitment to the psychiatric unit. The bizarre thoughts and delusions Schreber would experience may have been the result of the authoritarian parenting style of his father, Dr. Schreber. As a patient of Sigmund Freud, Freud would use Schreber's memoirs in formation of his psychoanalytic theory. The painful end to Daniel Schreber's life would result in spending 12 of his final 17 years confined to the hospital's psychiatric unit.
