Directing our attention first to the MS3 for the one hand, 1 SS George believes that doubtful and or-judgments probably belong to the same category.

Page 4 - Brightness, b, of an element of a luminous surface from a given position, is the luminous intensity per unit area of the surface projected on a plane perpendicular to the line of sight, and including only a surface of dimensions negligibly small in comparison with the distance to the observer. It is measured in candles per square centimeter of the projected area. Defining equation : Let 6 be the angle between the normal to the surface and the line of sight.
Page 478 - There is a relative decrease in the number of repetitions as the number of syllables increases. Particularly noteworthy is the fact that the number of repetitions for the series from 10 to 18 is practically constant.

It is probable that we have here inadequate convergence and that the optic axes do not intersect at the object but beyond, so that the axes are more or less parallel. Thus the feeling of convergence is less intense than experience teaches is necessary to perceive the object as such a size and at such a distance. If degree of convergence is a criterion for distance and if distance is a measure for the apparent size of an object then we have the conditions necessary for...

(p. 64). He concluded that : 1. " The presentation of two faint similar auditory stimuli in quick succession a few centimeters apart yields, under certain conditions, an impression of a sound moving in the direction of the actual temporal succession of the stimuli. Individuals vary in their susceptibility to the...

Page 414 - Left grip is closer to normal than right grip but is more subnormal than height or weight. It is closely associated with right grip. The typical feeble-minded person is relatively stronger in left grip than in right. (Sinistrality in grip does not necessarily imply sinistrality in other manual activities.) Both right and left grip are associated with height and weight.
Page 163 - The examination should be private, with carefully controlled conditions, and means at hand for recording involuntary movements, muscular contractions, and sudden or suppressed laughter. (c) The record should be interpreted by a psychologist experienced in this particular line, and should be scrutinized with careful reference to the construction and subject matter of the story, the record of the manner and muscular contractions of the witness, and above all it should be compared minutely with the...
