Words: “The Practical Value of Psychology…”

“The practical value of psychology… It is well recognized that the teacher must understand the working of the mind in order best to impart his information in that way that will enable the student to grasp it most readily. It was not recognized that every man[woman] going out into the world needs all the knowledge that he can get as to the working of the human mind in order not only to give but to receive information with the least waste and expenditure of energy… almost every man[woman] is a teacher.”  ~~  Lillian Gilbreth, (1914). Psychology of management. New York: Sturgis and Walton. pp. 1-2.
