This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ...the beginning and the end of the line. They are less in amount than any of the certain drawings except one in which "only fair certainty" is reported. Fig. 10-gives in Nos. 2, 3, and 4 respectively, tracings from a certain, an only moderately certain, and an uncertain drawing. In the drawings with the instruction "fast," certainty was reported in all but the first two cases, in which the subject was becoming accustomed to the process. All the curves of this series except the first two conform to the type already found to accompany certainty. One of them is illustrated in Fig. 10, No. 5. With this subject, therefore, we have not been able to correlate the attitudes of certainty and uncertainty with a definite form of curve when the subject has chosen his own rate of drawing, or has been instructed to draw at natural speed. When, however, he has been instructed to draw slowly or at a fast rate, difierences in the objective records appear, and these vary with differences in attitude. Subject R.--R. differs from the other subjects in the amount and kind of imagery he reports. His imagery is chiefly visual, though kinaesthetic imagery sometimes appears. Often incomplete images are reported, and sometimes part of an image is vague while the rest is clear. TABLE X Subject R.
