About-

In the decade before he became the highly controversial director of psychedelic drug research at Harvard, Timothy Leary was one of the leading clinical psychologists practicing in the U.S., heading the prestigious
Kaiser Foundation Psychological Research Center in Oakland.

INTERPERSONAL DIAGNOSIS OF PERSONALITY (1957), his first full-length book, summarizes the innovative experimental studies in interpersonal behavior performed by the author and his associates at the Kaiser Foundation and in private practice between 1950 and 1957.

Endorsements & Reviews-

The ANNUAL REVIEW OF PSYCHOLOGY (1958) called IDP "perhaps the most important clinical book to appear this year.... Rarely has psychology found a way of placing so many different data into the same schematic system, and the implications of this are potentially breathtaking."
------------------------------
"Leary's enduring contribution to psychodiagnosis, or, more generally, to the typology of personality, is embodied in his honored 1957 volume, INTERPERSONAL DIAGNOSIS OF PERSONALITY....The concept of levels was implicit in sophisticated personality descriptions, and degrees of consciousness were recognized in all the psychodynamically based systems, but none were connected systematically through the concept of interpersonal behavior as in the Leary system."

--Frank Barron, author of numerous books on the psychology of creativity.
