Information about the Society, Current, and Past Officers and Directors of ISSID

The International Society for the Study of Individual Differences (ISSID) was founded in 1983 to foster research on individual differences in temperament, intelligence, attitudes, and abilities. The aim of the society is to investigate the major dimensions of individual differences in the context of experimental, physiological, pharmacological, clinical, medical, genetical, statistical and social psychology. It further aims to seek the determinants, causes, and concomitants of individual differences, using concepts derived from these disciplines. To promote this purpose, the Society publishes scientific papers and organizes scientific meetings to discuss and exchange information and ideas relevant to the measurement, structure, dynamics and biological bases of individual differences. The official journal of the Society is Personality and Individual Differences.
