    Default The Person-Situation Debate

    I ran across an article titled:
    "The Person-Situation Debate: Do personality traits really exist?"
    http://faculty.concord.edu/rockc/articles/persit.html

    any thoughts?

    Yawn. The article describes a group of reactionists who counter-attacked the theory that everything depends on the individual. It's obvious that some things depend on the individual and some things on the situation. Everything that happens to people is an interaction between the two. Every now and then people just think they've discovered the wheel and act up. Silly buggers

    Thanks, Ann. That's an extremely interesting article. The arguments are well presented and constructed, based on proper research in Psychology. It properly summarizes somes issues at state in scientific research.

    Thanks alot for sharing it!
