Methods: To analyze types of experience that middle aged women attending the self help group went through to overcome midlife crisis, Q-methodology has been used. The 32 selected Q-samples from each of 27 subjects were classified into a shape of normal distribution using a 9-point scale. The collected data were analyzed using a QUANL PC program. The 38 selected Q-samples from each of 27 subjects were classified into a shape of normal distribution using a 9-point scale. The collected data were analyzed using a QUANL PC program. Results: The types of experience were classified into four categories; Type I (attempt to change), Type II (devoted to my role), Type III (tolerance and acceptance) and Type IV (role as a senior citizen).

  • This purpose of this study is to extract the perceptual types of Organizational Citizenship Behavior(OCB) conceptual domain. OCB is a employee behavior that goes above and beyond the call of duty, that is discretionary and not explicitly recognized by the employing organization's formal reward system, and that contributes to organizational effectiveness. But, as is generally known, OCB is such a fuzzy concept that many researchers have been questioning the exact conceptual domain of OCB. In this context, we try to applicate Q-methodology to find more effective way of explaining the conceptual domain of OCB. Q-sample was constructed by a thorough review on the relevant literature, and P-sample is 14 employees of an manufacturing company. In conclusion, we find three types of the conceptual domain of OCB, that is coworker-oriented, organization-orienteded, and work-orienteed type. The paper ends with suggestions for future research directions.

  • 현재의 영상 검색 시스템은 일반적으로 카테고리 검색 및 분류 검색으로 구성되어 있다. 일반적인 영상 데이터베이스 구축 및 현재의 검색 방법으로는 영상에 대한 재미요인을 분석하여 사용자에게 제공되지 않는다. 하지만 본 논문에서 제시하는 Q-방법론을 사용하여 영상을 분석하였다. Q-방법론에 의하여 분석된 영상은 영상 서버에 저장되며 영상 위치와 분석된 영상 디스크립션 및 재미요인은 데이터베이스에 구축하였다. 또한, 카테고리 검색 및 분류 검색에 대한 단점을 보강하기 위하여 키워드 검색시 색인 사전을 참조하여 온톨로지 검색에 대한 기능을 강화하였다.
