Healthy Change : Part Six — The Hygiology Post Incrementally Presents a Theory of Social Change — Page Seven of the Theory and Page Nine of Fourteen Pages Overall of “Holland’s Theory : Strengthening It” © 1986

Prescription #9  of “Some Prescriptions For Productive Goals” is : Consider voting for candidates (e.g., President of the United States) based upon levels of intuition in addition to other areas you believe deserve consideration (see “The Voter Scorecard”, Healthy Change : Part Five — Some Prescriptions For Productive Goals, #1 ). One goal is to increase the use and usefulness of The Voter Scorecard  © 1988, 2011 to obtain good election outcomes. Toward that end,  The Voter Scorecard © 1988, 2011 Scoring Version 1.0 on 2012 Presidential Candidates has been presented.

The Voter Scorecard © 1988, 2011 and The Voter Scorecard © 1988, 2011 Scoring Version 1.0 on 2012 Presidential Candidates can potentially provide a method to counteract and inoculate the voter against what biased monetary (political) contributors can buy (e.g., negative advertising tactics). As such, they each represent immediate solutions to address the issue of money corrupting the voting behavior process. The Voter Scorecard © 1988, 2011 and The Voter Scorecard © 1988, 2011 Scoring Version 1.0 on 2012 Presidential Candidates also provide a method to have the voter make their own well thought out decision(s) based upon their own research. 

The author plans to develop The Voter Scorecard © 1988, 2011 to enhance its use and usefulness as a method to obtain good election outcomes. Additional 2012 United States Presidential candidates may also be included. To help enhance the use and usefulness of The Voter Scorecard © 1988, 2011, a “Survey of The Voter Scorecard ©  1988, 2011 Scoring Version 1.0 On Eight 2012 US Presidential Candidates” consisting of five questions was also presented for all readers to complete and can also be accessed from a link in the sidebar as well as below. A summary of the results will be sent to the e-mail address you provide at the end of the survey free of charge.



The paper, “HOLLAND’S THEORY : STRENGTHENING IT” © 1986, does appear to characterize how the personality construct of intuition can at least help to explain (historical) social change. Also, it explains not only what has happened but makes predictions about what will happen. “HOLLAND’S THEORY : STRENGTHENING IT” © 1986 is believed to be relevant and important in helping to explain past and current events in society.

The presentation of this final part in the six part series is scheduled to be done incrementally.

Presented in this article is page seven of the Theory and page nine of fourteen pages overall of “Holland’s Theory : Strengthening It” © 1986. The typewritten paper consists of a total of fourteen pages which include a title page, a page that contains two quotes, eleven pages of the theory, and a reference page.

Readers may choose to acquaint themselves with the vocational behavior theory of John L Holland (viz., Making Vocational Choices : A Theory of Vocational Personalities and Work Environments, 1997, ISBN 0911907270 / 9780911907278 / 0-911907-27-0, Publisher : Psychological Assessment Resources, third edition; Making Vocational Choices : A Theory of Vocational Personalities and Work Environments, 1985, second edition, Englewood Cliffs NJ : Prentice-Hall, Inc. ; Making Vocational Choices : A Theory of Careers, 1973, Englewood Cliffs NJ : Prentice-Hall; and The Psychology of Vocational Choice, 1966, Waltham Mass. : Blaisdell) to provide background information. The specific area of Holland Personality Types or The Personality Types in these books the reader may find to be most relevant background information. Jung’s Typology as found in the book, “Psychological Types” by Carl Jung  (Psychological Types, 1971, page 553 [H.G. Baynes, Trans. revised by R. F. C. Hull.] Volume 6 of Bollinger Series. Princeton, NJ : Princeton University Press. [Original work published in 1921]) as well as the book by Erich Fromm, “Escape From Freedom” (copyright 1941,  © 1969 by Erich Fromm, Avon Books), would likely provide additional helpful background information for most readers.

The reader may also find that an article by Richard Kilburg also provides helpful information to further appreciate “Holland’s Theory : Strengthening It” © 1986. The article “Sadomasochism, human aggression, and the problem of workplace mobbing and bullying: A commentary” (Kilburg, Richard R. Consulting Psychology Journal: Practice and Research, Vol 61[3], September 2009, 268-275) concludes with the following Summary on page 274 :

“Workplace mobbing and bullying are real and timeless problems anchored deeply within human culture and psychodynamics. Efforts to help organizations address these challenges that fail to account for the phenomenon of sadomasochism are likely to be inadequate. Similarly, adopting health metaphors and prescriptive approaches, including exhortations to regulate bad behavior legally, may not work especially well in many types of organizations. Instead, mobbing and bullying may be better conceptualized as a diagnostic signal of underdeveloped managers in need of training and exceptional leadership development.” (Boldness of lettering was added by this author.)

The frequency, intensity and duration of behavioral instances of mobbing and bullying and similar instances of behavioral (inhumane) treatment toward others in various cultures (e.g.,  relationships between US banks and the public and other US financial institutions such as securities brokerages and the public) may also be conceptualized throughout the world as often portraying a diagnostic signal of underdeveloped leaders and institutional entities in need of at least training and at least exceptional leadership development as well as a need for a change of values and a change of character. The operationally ascribed values of such people or institutions often do not appear to be healthy. An important aspect of the milieu in the US and many places worldwide is the frequency, intensity, and duration in which money is corrupting the voting behavior process and money is corrupting other related entities such as the systems of justice. In the current milieu in which monetary interests seem to dominate, when some people make honest mistakes or no mistakes at all they are often not treated in a healthy manner (to a high frequency, intensity, and duration). Many examples could be identified illustrating and supporting the information in and import of this paragraph. Here is one example : (; obtained on 1-29-12)

“Pennsylvania: Former Judge Sentenced In Bribery Tied to Juvenile Court

Published: August 11, 2011

Former Luzerne County Judge Mark Ciavarella Jr. was ordered Thursday to spend 28 years in prison for a bribery scandal that prompted the state’s high court to overturn thousands of juvenile convictions…the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned about 4,000 convictions issued by the judge,…

Federal prosecutors accused Mr. Ciavarella and a second judge, Michael Conahan, of taking more than $2 million in bribes…”

And of course, it is possible that the legal process and/or information dissemination of the aforementioned legal cases against the judges may have also been corrupted by such things as what is commonly called prosecutorial misconduct (or, prosecutorial abuse) and/or monetary interests (e.g., bribe judge[s]) which both have appeared to evidence a high degree of frequency, intensity, and duration in the US in recent history.

From the Spring of 1986, page seven of the theory and page nine of fourteen pages overall of “HOLLAND’S THEORY : STRENGTHENING IT” © 1986 is presented below.  Please note the barely visible handwritten word “between” after the word “delineate” below which was placed on the paper prior to turning in the assigned paper in 1986. The professor wrote on the paper after it was turned in with what does appear to be a red pen.



The Hygiology Post welcomes feedback from readers on all six parts of the series (individually and/or as a total package) upon completion of the series as to whether the articles help fulfill its vision and mission.
