This article needs major improvement. I've tried to fix as many errors as I could find. Many of these topics don't seem fit as basic psychological topics, though I am in no position to contribute to the content of this article. --Nefitty 13:43, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Your input and feedback is welcomed and encouraged.

The "History of" section needs links![edit]

Please add some relevant links to the history section.

Links can be found in the "History of" article for this subject, in the "History of" category for this subject, or in the corresponding navigation templates. Or you could search for topics on Google - most topics turn blue when added to Wikipedia as internal links.

Article needs massive help from experts[edit]

This article is not ready for prime time. It should still be in a sandbox somewhere rather than linked to the main psychology article, until it is very significantly improved.

The General psychology concepts section is such a disaster I have moved it here (below) until it looks more like it reflects modern psychology (as opposed to psychology of 30 or 40 years ago). -DoctorW 01:16, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

I built the sections you didn't erase. Maybe I can be of help. The Transhumanist 03:07, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

There's a lot missing from the outline.

What new sections do you think it needs?

Intelligence Citations Bibliography for Articles Related to IQ Testing[edit]

You may find it helpful while reading or editing articles to look at a bibliography of Intelligence Citations, posted for the use of all Wikipedians who have occasion to edit articles on human intelligence and related issues. I happen to have circulating access to a huge academic research library at a university with an active research program in those issues (and to another library that is one of the ten largest public library systems in the United States) and have been researching these issues since 1989. You are welcome to use these citations for your own research. You can help other Wikipedians by suggesting new sources through comments on that page. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk) 02:42, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

Quick explanation of Wikipedia outlines[edit]

"Outline" is short for "hierarchical outline". There are two types of outlines: sentence outlines (like those you made in school to plan a paper), and topic outlines (like the topical synopses that professors hand out at the beginning of a college course). Outlines on Wikipedia are primarily topic outlines that serve 2 main purposes: they provide taxonomical classification of subjects showing what topics belong to a subject and how they are related to each other (via their placement in the tree structure), and as subject-based tables of contents linked to topics in the encyclopedia. The hierarchy is maintained through the use of heading levels and indented bullets. See Wikipedia:Outlines for a more in-depth explanation. The Transhumanist 00:09, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
