A major breakthrough in understanding human capability, intelligence, & development theory is reported with the results of Cason/Jaques' conclusive 3-year validation study capping Jaques' 38-year developmental program. Evidence shows that individuals mature within predictable patterns & that maturation continues throughout life. First uncovered by Dr. Jaques in 1956, this theory has been continually tested & confirmed since that time. Study validates the authors' dynamic conception about the maturation of capability beyond adolescence & includes discussion relating it to Piaget's concepts, which end at age 15, & to IQ studies which posit that intelligence fully matures by age 18. Cason/Jaques' research & field work demonstrate with high reliability & validity that when heavily engrossed in work, individuals process information in four & only four ways which recur in a series of higher orders of information complexity. Further, this hierarchy of mental processing methods corresponds with levels of individual capability & gives an objective method of DIRECT OBSERVATION of capability. The ability to plot & predict the growth of human potential capability is experienced by some as controversial. Social consequences of this work are substantial & are addressed by the authors.
