Progress in Experimental Personality Research, Volume 11: Normal Personality Processes focuses on the experimental study of normal personality, emphasizing the problems of measurement and method. This book begins with an innovative proposal for an approach to the measurement of personality, followed by an analysis of the central role that is played by the “illusory correlation” effect in human assessments of the traits of other people as well as of self. The framework for the study of personality that is based on the analysis of cognitive processes and problem of measurement validity in the assessment of behavior and personality in children are also covered. This publication concludes with a description of the state of evidence bearing on the provocative model of national differences. This volume is recommended for psychologists and specialists concerned with personality processes or psychopathology.
