Psychometricians are hot - in demand, obscure, esoteric and cerebral
Ok........we applied psychometricians have finally arrived!!!!
An article in the NY Times talks (click here to read) about how psychometricians, largely because of the No Child Left Behind Legislation (NCLB) [or what I've often called the "psychometricians full employment act" ] are now "one of the most obscure, esoteric, and cerebral professions in America" and the profession "is also one of the hottest." I like the label and description. Maybe I will put this quote on my IAP business cards.
