Some of the problems facing professions are outlined: recruitment, selection, training, certification, specialization and job evaluation. Some of the principles provided by psychology which are relevant to a consideration of these problems are then considered. These principles pertain to individual differences in behaviour, the possibility of measuring these differences, the relationships between personality characteristics and occupational performance, the predictability of behaviour and its modifiability.
