Two David Wechslers[edit]

I have expanded this page to the point where I don't think it qualifies as a stub. I also took out the following sentence: "David Wechsler is also the name of a Civil Servant, who has been Chief Executive of the London Borough of Croydon since 1987." I figure that if the modern Mr. Wechsler is important enough to be in Wikipedia, someone will create a seperate article for him. My apologies to anyone who may know the British Mr. Wechsler.--Cassmus 08:08, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

I eliminated the statement "NB this David Wechsler is not to be confused with David K Wechsler, a Local Government officer from London, England." Because the contemporary David Wechsler apparently didn't begin his public career until after the psychologist David Wechsler died, I doubt there is much confusion. If a Wikipedian truly believes there is confusion, then he or she should create an article about David K. Wechsler, and have create a link from this page to that one.--Cassmus 09:02, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Assessment[edit]

I'm going to suggest boosting Wechslers's importance assessment up to Mid. In my opinion, developing one of the best-known intelligence tests (and having it named after you) merits more than a Low assessment, which is reserved for more obscure topics. What does everyone else think? —Cswrye 22:32, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Intelligence Citations Bibliography for Articles Related to IQ Testing[edit]

You may find it helpful while reading or editing articles to look at a bibliography of Intelligence Citations, posted for the use of all Wikipedians who have occasion to edit articles on human intelligence and related issues. I happen to have circulating access to a huge academic research library at a university with an active research program in these issues (and to another library that is one of the ten largest public library systems in the United States) and have been researching these issues since 1989. You are welcome to use these citations for your own research. You can help other Wikipedians by suggesting new sources through comments on that page. It will be extremely helpful for articles on human intelligence to edit them according to the Wikipedia standards for reliable sources for medicine-related articles, as it is important to get these issues as well verified as possible. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk) 20:08, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

I have the newest version of the only source cited in this article at hand, and quite a few other sources, so I hope to expand this article soon. All of you are welcome to suggest further sources. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk, how I edit) 17:31, 7 November 2010 (UTC)
