David C. McClelland

subjects David C. McClelland writes about Macroeconomics, Employee Motivation, Organization
David C. McClelland's profile David McClelland was born May 20, 1917 in Mt. Vernon, New York. He received his B.A. degree in 1938 from Wesleyan University and his M.A. in 1939 from the University of Missouri. His received his Ph.D. in experimental psychology from Yale University in 1941.

He taught at the Connecticut College for Women in New London, Connecticut and Wesleyan University prior to accepting a position at Harvard University in 1956. After 30 years at Harvard, he moved to Boston University in 1987, where he was a Distinguished Research Professor of Psychology until his death in March 1998 at the age of 80.

Although McClelland is best-known for his research on achievement motivation, his research interests ranged from personality to consciousness. Along with John Atkinson, he developed the scoring system for the Thematic Apperception Test which was used in achievement motivation research. Later, he became interested in the relationship between achievement motivation and economic development. Before his death, he conducted research on physiological influences on achievement motivation. McClelland received numerous awards for his research, including the American Psychological Association Award for Distinguished Scientific Contribution in 1987.
His publications include The Achieving Society (1961), The Roots of Consciousness (1964), Power: The Inner Experience (1975), and The Achievement Motive (1953, with Atkinson, Clark, and Lowell).
