Pareto’s Psychology

This chapter will examine what Pareto said concerning each of the individual

differences which align to form his psychological model. It will consider how well

these differences match up with constructs which have subsequently developed

within psychological and sociological literatures, and it will call upon wide-ranging

evidence to assess the extent to which they align as Pareto envisioned. For this task

to remain manageable, it has been necessary to focus upon what seem to be the

model’s core individual differences.
