Person-orientation in person–situation research
2009 (English)In: journal of Research in Personality, ISSN 0092-6566, E-ISSN 1095-7251, Vol. 43, no 2, 276-277 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The article focuses on two tenets of person-oriented research and their implications for the person-situation integration in personality psychology. The first tenet states that development and structure of behavior are person-specific and the second that dimensional identity may not exist across individuals, time, or space. It is claimed that, if these tenets are accepted, they have far reaching implications for research strategy and the interpretation of findings in personality research. Two examples are given where the tenability of these tenets becomes crucial and where the uncritical use of standard methodology is called into question.
