I PSYCHOLOGY OF VOCATION
(From Wednesday's First Edition.)
At tho meeting of tho Territorial
Teachers' Association held last even
ing President Arthur Maxon Smith
rend the following address on "Psy
chology of Vocation":
Tho practical schoolman of today
finds himself traveling that great land
called "reform." He is Interested In
tho scenery, nil new nnd beautiful, es
pecially the clouds, But In spite, of the
apparent attractiveness of tho new
country, his pathway Is, for tho largci
part, difficult, thorny, full of rocks nnd
pitfalls, nnd were he able to take time
lo orient himself requently, ho would
find doubtless that his course Is tho
longitudinal section of a labyrinth.
But he Jogs hopefully and strenuous
ly on, nothing doubting that In good
time and season he will straighten out
Ihe devious pathway Into n bco-llno to
the glorious Ideal, and a new educa
tional epoch, perhaps several of them,
will burst upon him. It realty Is not
his fault that ho Is In this reformatory
transition stote. Tho very lively
American public demand for new In
ventions, assisted by the rather gener
al public feeling that there is a wide
gap between the school nnd practical
American affairs, together with the
confident and (on the whole) helpful
eflorts of our psychological, philosoph
ical blazers of the new path have forc
ed him Into this position; In Bpite of
himself ho must thread tho way
rocks, thorns, clouds and all and It Is
hard (financially) to kick against tno
pricks. Most of the suggestions which
wise people make to him are either so
sweeping nnd drastic In their reform
ntory Intent or so vague and unpracti
cal that tne poor teacher knows not
which way to turn or what to do next
nnd possibly, In this state of mind,
ho Is somewhat negligent of tho old
things which experience nnd tradition
designated as good for a Bchoolboy to
learn. However, wo mny leave that
part of the diagnosis to Prof. Munstcr
burg, and go on to what Is more ponu.
lar a suggestion of something more
new a new course of study; one
more thorn In the flesh; nnother kink
In the labyrinth! The apology for this
suggestion Is tho hope that it may help
to solve some of the difficulties which
already confront us, or perhaps serve,
both to the teacher, administering a
curriculum, and to the student, taking
the dose, something of a palliative and
von ec tlve.
In High School Course.
We suggest whnt might bo called,
for lack of a more scientific-sounding
title, n Psychology of Vocations; n
course of study to bo given to the stu
dent sometime during tho many long
years before he finishes the High
School. This course need not contin
ue longer than three or four months. It
should be void of all psychological ter
minology nnd technicalities, but never
tneless shoulil be a psychological ex
amtnatlon and study of the various
lending vocations In llfo which ordl
nnrlly attract the student, and which
exercise upon him (together with his
childish caprice) the deciding Influence
In his choice of electlves ns s school
preparation for llfo. Such a course of
study would glvn tho student nn Intelli
gent Idea of the human powers brought
Into piny by the various vocations. It
would point out to him the mental,
nervous and physical functions cnlled
Into activity by the different pursuits
and professions. In a very simple.
manner that various demonstrations
and experiments might be undertaken
In the class tending not only to Illus
trate the activities involved In the va
rious ocatlons, but ns well the rela
tive adaptability of the students to
the different pursuits. For example,
theic is a wide dlffercnco between the
activities of the mcrchnnt and those
of the physician. These characteristic
activities, nnd the corresponding qunl
Itles of mind nnd nervo Involved might
be easily studied, classified nnd made
a basis or psychological study with
the class. And 1-0 on through the va
rlous more important vocations. Such
a Btudy probably could not bo profit
ably undertaken with a class below tho
eighth grade, and would be much more
valuable for tho first or second year
class of the High School.
What, now, are some of the dlfficul
tics which a Psychology 01 ocatlons
called by any other nnmo ns sweet.
If you wish would remove, and whnt
are some of the positive advantage
11 would afford?
. The Elective System.
( ' of the great new things In mod
ern education Is the elective system,
It Is hern to stay. Whether we like n
or not, American public sentiment do
mands today that a part of the long
period of schooling from the hinder
Kartell (age three) to tho glorious
High School commencement (age 18)
shall bo utilized for the purpose of
preparing the student for some special
vocation In life, Public sentiment may
bo wrong, and when wo havo university-trained
teachers throughout our
schools, thcieby considerably shorten
lug the period of primary and second
nry schooling, public sentiment may be
less Insistent on this point of special
repparntlon. But so long as the great
majority of High School students end
their school days wliu the completion
of the High School course and enter at
once active life, so long will tho High
School In partlcula.' be compelled to
afford students a special preparation
for some vocation. If tho vocation Is
n technical profession, requiring colle
giate specialization, then also will tho
High School student be forced to a
certain extent to specialize In order to
meet the entrance, requirements for
Ivls special college work. 'i..us for
both classes of students, those who In
tend to go to college and those who do
uot, public sentiment demands a cer
tain amount of specialization In the
High School course, and this speciali
zation can be afforded only by an
There Is also another reason for tho
demand for nn elective system, viz.,
thu feeling entertained by many lead
ing educatuis that rur tiudltlnnal edu
cation did not really meet tho require
ments of the child's nature as theso
havo been determined by experimental
psychology and by the ruling philoso
phy of the times. They tell us today
that the logical and natural culture ot
the child should proceed along the
llnei Indicated by his social and his
torical environment and inheritance,
rather than along the lines of thu clas
sical ciiltuiu handed down to us by me
diaeval scholasticism, This new con
ccptlon of education demands changes.
and tho changes must naturally be
such as arlso from a closer correlation I
of the school and society, that Is, tho
school must moro definitely represent,!
the current social and economic forces,
henco the Introduction of courses ol
study; either as required or elective,
which rbprcsent the range of vocations
In thp child's social nnd economic en
vironment, .no elective system Is
thus with us, as the fulfillment ot a
public demand and a philosophical and
psychological verdict as to the naturo
and process of true education.
The Elective Dangers.
But neither public demand nor phil
osophy hnve ns yet freed us from tne
very grave dangers tif the elective sys
tem. Good as It Is to a certain extent,
It Is, nevertheless, mil of danger and
weakness If not properly handled. Why
should a boy of fourteen bo compelled
to choose at that age his life work!
That Is precisely what he must do un
der the elective system ns conducted
by many schools, if ho wants to nvotd
n L-reat loss of time nnd bo free from
harassing nnd Injurious experimental
changes from one couise to nnother
during his High School career.
But this Is not the most serious dan
ger of the leectlve system. That lies
rather In the fact thnt in perhaps the
majority of cases the election of
courses Is based on childish caprice,
which Is as unreliable, unintelligent
and as useless as would bo the ambi
tion of nn Apache Indian to bo the
King of England. Tne only redeeming
feature about such a situation is that
the child must study something. He
cannot elect to do nothing. Somo will
maintain that It really makes no dif
ference whnt the child studies, provid
ed he Is kept busy. But It does make
all the difference In the world If a
hlld elects the scientific courso be
cause he wants to meet tho require
ments for a college course In civil en
gineering, because, forsooth, his great
uncle Is n very successful engi
neer, and the boy nas chanced to Bee
more of this profession than any other
particular one It docs make a groat
difference. If he chooses such a course.
and then, three or four years later, dis
covers thnt. great-uncles notwithstand
ing, he has no taste or aptitude for sci
ence nnd mathematics, but has strong
linguistic tendencies. It means that
for several years he has been putting
his time Into work that has crowded
out his preparation for a linguistic
college e nurse, for wnlch he really
should hnvn been preparing .himself,
It would have been far better for a
bay Jn such a case to have been held
to the old stralght,-Jacket system of
l.atln, Greek, mathematics, English
science, with perhaps a little moro or
less of any ono ot these, than tho stu
dent now gets under the elective sys
tem. This Is not n fanciful case, but Is
typical of, a great many Instances ot
tne inefficiency nnd Injury of tho elect
ive system. But tno elective system
Is here, and It Is nn advance on tho
old system, provided we can harness
and bridle and hitch It up and drive It
Check Capricious Election.
The first benefit, thcrvfoie, of a
good course In. tho Psychology
of Yocntlons would he n decided chock
on the capricious election of courses,
Our budding young engineer, by a
careful nnd compniatlve study of the
woik of a civil engineer and thut ot ft
professor of Greek probably would
haw easily discovered with the help
of 11 teacher well trained in psycholo
gy, thnt In spite or the gllt-cdgcd at
tractions of his grcat-uucle's career,
his own powers did not Indicate that
field of labor as his life woik.
And tilts suggests n second beneficial
result of n Psychology of Yocntlons
Just think of n 14-yeor-old child decid
ing on his life woik! Now think of
thnt! But the elecltve system invites
him, nnd within ceitnln limits fairly
compels him, to do so. Result: In the
case of the! boy who decided to bo a
minister, three or four years Inter nn
other noble career blasted before It
even vprouteil. At 14 he was sure
that he wns to be n minister: hence
the choice of the classical course, hut
at IS he discovers that he abhors
Gieek and Latin, has little aptitude
for public speaking, nnd absolutely no
desire to occupy a pulpit the rest of
ills life, hut Instead, fairly revels In
bugs, worms nail germs, microscopes
nnd scalpels, and really enn do very
creditable work In biology, nnd thor
oughly enjoys It. Another lesult: so
certain was he, at fourteen, thnt he
was to be n minister that he at once
felt nil the Importance of position
Icideihhlp, etc.. of thut caieer. as his
J "ii. anil consequently was so conceit
ed thnt Ik wns nn intolerable boro to
others and, what Is worse and exceed
ingly serious, his proper nnd modest
appreciation of self, a right telatlon uf
sell to others and to his work, was
spoiled by this overdose of ambition
mid piemiitmo realization of a magni
ficent caicer! TIiIb destruction, or.
nithir, super-Inflation of self-respect
rciVBturlly leflected most Injuriously
on inn cniiirs attitude toward his own
Intellectual endeavor. Ho becama
convinced of his superior mental ma-
chlnery. gradually forgot to turn the
crank steadily every day, and conse
quently nt the end of his couise found
his ministerial collego pi epai ntory
equipment badly out of gear, exceed
Ingly lusty nnd poorly lubricated, while
Ills real Interest had been Incidentally
awakened In nn entirely different flohl,
I lie most serious phase of tno whole
affair Is tho destruction of the chlld'3
right attitude toward self and others.
Theic Is no doubt that an elective sys
tem, turned loose In a school, Is a mag
nlfleent piodmcr und fertilizer of an
Intolerable self-conceit nnd bombastic
self-assertlvcness on tho pait of
students. Anil tho pity or It Is thnt
the elective system Is very largely
turned loosu! Here there is n great
possible nenellt to Do derived from a
Psychology of Yocntlons: It would
Inevitably chock this dcstiuctlou ot
right attitude, clear away much of the
lamentable self-conceit common to the
American school, to say nothlm: of thu

reeling that they have long been on

Is nothing to do now but to go on.

nnd had oxplalned, from tho psycho
logical point of view und witli Its
method (minus the technical termtnol
ogy) that the life or tho minister Is
tho most long-suffering of nil voca
tlons or long-suffering humanity, and
that the leal qualifications for sudi a
life woik ami tho motives for under
taking It leally llo far beneath the
surface which a boy casually peri
eclves, It Is qulto posstblo that our
young aspirant would not have made
a blunder In his choice, and, at all
events, his spirit would havo been
saved. But again. Just because ha Is
n child, the 14-year-old boy might de
cide, in Bplte of psychological dis
couragements and his own apparent
lack of natural aptitude, to be a mln
Istcr. for there Is slmnlv no telllne
what castles in tho air n boy will build
nnd live in, for boys usually have trc
mendous theoretical courage.
Study the Pupils.
Now, while tho students are study
ing vocations with the teacher, tne
teacher will bo studying his pupils.
nnd If ho Is psychologically trained a'nd
In addition has a few grains of com
mon sense, he will rot be at this class
work three weeks before ho will bo
able to give both the students and
their parents some sound, corrective
advico as to what Intellectual and ner
vous and physical qualifications his
pupils have, and within certain limits
what they can and what they cannot
do In life. If, for example, he finds
a boy who has to take three minutes
to add up a column of threo figures,
but who has a strong and quick per
ception of rythm nnd responds quick
ly to poetic form and'cxprcsslon, and
has good command ot language, he
certainly would mako no mistake In
advising that boy's parents to keep
the boy at mathematics throughout a
considerable portion of his school
course, for the sake of decent mental
balance, but by no means allow him
to choose a course of study or a ca
reer based on facility for mathematl
cal calculation; rather to make his ul
timate work In the region ot language
and literature. Under a capable teach
cr, such a course of study would be
come a magnificent Intelligence bu
reau, for students, teacher nnd par
ents, and would not only throw out
many warnings as to tho election of
courses of study, but would greatly as
sist and oftentimes greatly encourage
students lu the selection of courses
Another positive result of a course
In Psychology of Vocations would bo
a step toward the positive and Intclll
gent relating of the child's self to his
community. What our schools are
more and more Insisting upon, what
leading educators aro demanding as
fundamental, and what, In fact, has
given rise to this elective system In
the schools, Is the positive correlation
of the school nnd the community. No
mntter how much Latin, Greek nnd
History of by-gone nges the student
may know, we Insist even morn em
phatically in these stirring times, that
he shall find his place In his commu
nlty; that ho shall understand the va
rlous elements of society; that he
snail prepare lilmseir to bo a rcspon
i-lble and active member of society.
And so we give him the elective sys
tem! But gather up all tho elective
systems on the face of educational
snith today. In them nil or with them
all. how much are we actually teach
ing tne boys and girls, who are nrenar-
lug for responsible living, what llfo Is.
why men do this, that and tho other,
how people act, live, work, succeed
aril rail Nothing! Just nothing. Is
the sum of positive Instruction In this
direction. We take the earth, tho sky,
wuni men did In Greece and Rome, a
few of the battles they havo fought
miring the centuries, some of tho lit
erature they have written, how to
count In the concrete and calculate In
the nbstract and then, behold our
beneficent and provident h'cts! we
shake this all up, divide It by three
01 four along the lines of least resist
ance, and tell the student to come and
tnke of the water of llfo freely and
get ready to live! If a Psychology of
Vocations could do oven n little by
way or imparting to tne student an In
telligent view of 1.10 various elements
of society of which he is a part, and
point out to him the probable possibili
ties and Impossibilities or his life In
society. It might go far to solve the
question of the Intelligent relation of
the students school life to society.
Some order might como out of our
elective chaos, nnd tho school might
be somewhat helped to accomplish
vntl it wants to do now, but is not
doing, viz., give the nature wnlch God
puts In the child a chance to grow In
the way it wants to, and prepare It to
do the work In tho world it Is fitted
by nature to do.
A child comes to us and we offer hlra
