Summary

Considerable evidence suggests that human survival and the opportunity for a decent life for all depend on attaining a way of life more in harmony with the natural environment and available resources. As a step toward understanding specializing in environmental problems, this study compared environmental psychology researchers with interpersonal attraction researchers and with psychologists in general on measures of current career and educational background. Both groups of researchers are more oriented than other psychologists to scientific aspects of psychology and less oriented to people-related aspects. Fewer differences were obtained between the two research groups, although the environmental psychologists seem somewhat more biologically and quantitatively oriented, perhaps a reflection of an ecological perspective. The clearest trend appears to be that a more heterogeneous area like environmental psychology will attract a more diverse group of researchers. Tables and references are included in the study.
