Not illustrated. 1908 edition. Excerpt: ...observers say, the recognition of a method gives one confidence in his ability to do the work. With G. C. F. imagery was recognized about the fourth or fifth day, and the rise in the curve is most rapid immediately after. With D. S., imagery was recovered the first and second days and the rise in the curve is most rapid during the first, second and third days. With H. C. F.., imagery was recognized the first day and the gain is very rapid the first two days. With A. R. F., imagery was described on the fifth and sixth days and the gain is greatest on the sixth day, although the gain is great on the second day also. In the case of M. M. M., whose curve shows only a slight gain during practice, yet who recognized imagery on the first day, the rise is great on the first day but is not great thereafter until the seventh and eighth days when he began to recover from an attack of the grip, from which he suffered severely on the sixth day. With A. R. F., whose imagery seems somewhat intricate, the relation between complexity and rate of improvement is shown. This observer speaks of losing many groups because he had not time enough to adjust his imagery to the group. In the case of untrained observers, a recognition of imagery is not alone sufficient to give this confidence of improvement; for many say that they are not sure that they can use the imagery in other tests. A certain familiarity with imagery would seem, therefore, essential. This familiarity the training series gives.
