“My collaboration with Thomas International, in general, and its psychology department, more specifically, has been cordial, seamless and mutually beneficial. Together, we have successfully been able to bring to the global market the world’s number one psychometric instrument for the assessment of human emotions. My own research program has benefited no end from its expansion beyond narrow academic confines and the motivation to consider real human problems affecting individuals in their everyday lives. I look forward to continuing my fruitful partnership with everyone at Thomas and accelerating the translation of my research findings to practical ways that will help every willing person achieve their ultimate, unlimited, potential.”
