The developement of psychology during the Industrial Revolution.?

I have an investigation topic to do. I came up with “How did the theories and speculations of psychology affect the Industrial Revolution?” I think it’s a great topic and done well it would get me a great grade, but I haven’t been able to find any information.
The Industrial Revolution is when names like Pavlov, Freud and Nietzche came about.

    A fundamental requirement of the Industrial Revolution was the need to train people to do extremely boring work, all day, every day. Pavlov’s work was particularly useful in keeping workers motivated. I’m not sure about Freud, but Nietzche said “That which does not kill me makes me stronger.” I wonder if that would apply?
