Herman Ebbinghaus -develop the 1st sentence completion test to assess the INTELLECTUAL CAPACITY and REASONING ABILITY of school children in Breslau, Germany.
This was also the 1st published account of an intelligence test.
Carl Jung -used the word association technique to study personality

this area afford opportunities for the
