Consistency, Scalability, and Personality Measurement by Kevin Lanning

By Kevin Lanning

In the final 25 years, there's no factor in character psychology which has been as hotly debated as that of consistency. This booklet introduces scalability as an inexpensive and theoretically fulfilling conceptualization of consistency. 3 empirical reviews of scalability are defined; their concentration is at the position of scalability as a moderator in prediction. This booklet makes major inroads within the box of character size, and, by way of reviewing past techniques to character overview, it presents a legitimate theoretical foundation for the outline and mapping of personalities.

Any effects of persons and situations in such a matrix would be perfectly generalizable. The ANOVA and generalizability approaches have the apparent advantage of disentangling the main effects of both persons and situations. But the advantage is questionable. In the ANOVA approach, these effects are uninterpretable. In the generalizability approach, both coefficients depend upon the same interaction term. It is this term, and not the main effects, which reflects the presence or absence of dispositions in the sample of persons under study (Argyle & Little, 1972).

The student muddles through the easiest items and struggles somewhat on those of only moderate difficulty. The more difficult items are taxing, and the student no more than recognizes the material; still, in spite of the subjective difficulty of these items, the student will make marginally educated guesses. With the most difficult items, it is a different story. The student is overwhelmed and clueless; the questions might as well be in a different language. Confronted with this situation, the student might manifest one of a number of responses.

But even if, for example, high dominance-scalability is not what we ordinarily label as "dominance", it can still tell us something important about the person, and is consequently of interest to personality assessment. 5 Summary In this chapter, prior empirical investigations of the properties of withinindividual consistency were examined.
