Raymond Bernard Cattell (1905-1998) was a research professor of psychology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign from 1945 to 1977. He was a British-American psychologist known for his research of intrapersonal psychological behaviors and for developing empirical psychological methods used to create behavioral and ability tests. His research focused on personality and temperament, motivation and emotion, abnormal personalities and social behaviors, predictive measures of creativity and achievement, and analytic tools to measure these domains.
