Kirby Gilliland is a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology at the University of Oklahoma. He was trained in experimental personality and clinical psychology and has broad interests in personality and individual differences characteristics, especially as they relate to human performance and cognition. He also has extensive experience in developing and evaluating computer-based test batteries applied to human performance and neurocognitive assessment. While focusing primarily on theoretically based research in personality and individual differences, Gilliland has also demonstrated how researchers in these subdisciplines can make contributions to a broad range of areas such as psychophysics, human performance, assessment, psychophysiology, neuropsychology, and clinical psychology.
Early Life and Educational Background
Born in 1947, Gilliland’s early life was divided between a small southwestern farming town and the San Francisco Bay Area, providing a combination of unique...
