I am hereby sorting Psychology into two major areas (there may be others):

  • Introspective Psychology is concerned with introspection as an analytical tool, with thoughts and ideas, and with the nature of the mind
  • Behavioral Psychology studies external behavior rather than inner mental states, and often involves detailed statistical analysis; the mind as machine

Tests and scales for evaluating psychological traits:

  • Tellegen Absorption Scale - "correlates aspects of spirituality and altered states of consciousness" - see [1].
  • Tridimensional Personality Questionnaire - "a measure of the need for social contact and openness to communication" - seems to be used a lot, but I can't find the actual questionnaire
  • Myers-Briggs Type Indicator
