Guion honored for scientific work


Robert M. Guion has been honored by the Foundation for the Advancement of Behavioral and Brain Sciences
for his important scientific contributions.
Guion, a Bowling Green State University emeritus professor of psychology, was featured in the past year
on the FABBS web page (
He was nominated for the honor by Milt Hakel, Ohio eminent professor of psychology at BGSU, and Leaetta
Hough of The Dunnette Group in Minneapolis.
The foundation is an educational non-profit organization established to promote and enhance the
understanding of the behavioral, psychological and brain sciences.
It is in the field of industrial and organizational psychology that Guion, who was at the university from
1952-85, made perhaps his greatest scientific contributions. For nearly 60 years he has been a leading
light in I-O psychology and was instrumental in founding BGSU’s program, now recognized as one of the
top programs in the country.
His contributions have covered attitudes, morale, motivation, recruiting, placement, selection,
discrimination and organizational climate.
His 1965 landmark book, Personnel Testing, has been required reading in I-O circles and his 1998 book,
Assessment, Measurement, and Prediction for Personnel Decisions, has had the same strong impact.
