dc.description.abstractHeuristically, a distinction between the perception of time and the judgement of time is justifiable. The problem of the perception of time as here understood, includes the development and appreciation of time concepts; the individual's awareness or phenomenal experience of the past, present, and future; and the area of time perspectives (4). One would expect that these various aspects of time perception are more intimately related to the individual’s ego structure than what is here designated as time judgment. The latter has been much investigated. In psychological laboratories and may be defined as the person's judgment or estimation of the duration of rather specific intervals of time. In the usual laboratory situation the subject is asked to estimate verbally an interval of time produced by the experimenter, to produce (by means of a buzzer or light) an interval of time as requested by the experimenter, or to reproduce or match an interval which has previously been produced by the experimenter. In other cases, the subject is asked to make a. verbal judgment as to the equality or difference of two successive intervals produced by the experimenter. Although time judgment and the perception or phenomenal experience of time may be related, this possible relationship will not be herein considered.

The first two methods of time judgment and the relation of these to a concept of personal time are the subject of this thesis. In addition, the thesis concerns the relation between these methods of time judgement and a simple motor task.
