Overview

In the last 25 years, there is no issue in personality psychology which has been as hotly debated as that of consistency. This book introduces scalability as a reasonable and theoretically satisfying conceptualization of consistency. Three empirical studies of scalability are described; their focus is on the role of scalability as a moderator in prediction. This book makes significant inroads in the field of personality measurement, and, by reviewing previous approaches to personality assessment, it provides a sound theoretical basis for the description and mapping of personalities.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In this revision of his doctoral dissertation (U.C. Berkeley, 1986) Lanning attempts to bridge the gap between personality theory and personality research by, on the one hand, reexpressing theoretical concepts in a measurable form and, on the other, by reexamining personality research in light of these personality theories. Indexed by name only. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
