Although a considerable proportion of psychologists are involved in organizational psychology, the notion of psychology as a profession is primarily linked to psychotherapy and advisory work. This phenomenon is not at all surprising, since organizational psychology did not occupy a crucial role in the lives of businesses prior to the change of regime. Organizational development, the practice of organizational psychology, began to gain currency in Hungary in the 1990's, and it is growing in popularity today. The present study examines the differences between the general beliefs about organizational psychologists and the notions concerning clinical psychologists. The stereotypes regarding organizational psychologists are explored across various groups, each having a different relationship to the profession. The opinions gathered from non-professional university students are compared to those provided by the associates of organizational psychologists.
