Experimental Psychology: A Manual of Laboratory Practice, Vol. II: Quantitative Experiments, part 1: Student's Manual
Titchener, Edward B.
Prefatory Note : Suggestions to Students ix 
any false shame about making a complaint. You may be pretty 
sure that, if you do not get on with him, neither does he get on 
with you. Talk the situation over with him, and part by mutual 
consent. It is foolish to spoil your work for a scruple. 
On your own side, try hard to live up to the terms of the 
laboratory partnership as described in vol. I., xvi. 
Note Book, Essay Book, Commonplace Book.—The note book is 
to be kept just as for the qualitative experiments (vol. I., xvi. f.), 
with such minor differences of record as the changed character 
of the work makes necessary. It should be handed in to the 
Instructor immediately after the writing up of each separate ex¬ 
periment, so that criticisms and corrections may be made while 
the performance of the experiment is still fresh in your memory. 
From time to time, as the Course proceeds, you will be asked 
to write an essay upon some general topic connected with the 
experiments. Write the essays in a second note book, kept 
specially for them. Write upon one side of the paper only, but 
enter your references and footnotes upon the other, blank side. 
If you have occasion to quote a foreign author, give a transla¬ 
tion of the quoted sentences in the body of the essay, and write 
out the original upon the corresponding blank page of the essay 
book. Never shirk the labour of translation ; and, for accuracy’s 
sake, never omit the transcription of the original passage. 
If you intend to take a further course in Systematic Psychology 
at the conclusion of this laboratory work : still more, if you in¬ 
tend to pursue graduate studies in psychology : it will be well 
worth your while to keep, besides the note book and the essay 
book, a third book for the recording of miscellaneous psychologi¬ 
cal notes. This commonplace book might contain, e. g., abstracts 
of the authors read for an essay, lists of problems that suggest 
themselves to you in the course of the laboratory exercises, criti¬ 
cisms of current theories, theoretical ideas of your own, lists of 
references upon topics in which you are interested, odd bits of 
psychologising that you meet with in your other laboratory and 
class-room work or in your general reading, apt illustrations of 
psychological laws that you come across in everyday life, the 
questions and objections hurled at you by outside critics, etc., etc. 
To the psychologist, the whole of ‘thisgreat and glorious world’
