Applied Personality Assessment: A 'Cronbachian' Perspective in Open Peer Commentary and Author's Response

Corr, P. J. (2017). Applied Personality Assessment: A 'Cronbachian' Perspective in Open Peer Commentary and Author's Response. European Journal of Personality, 31(5), pp. 441-502. doi: 10.1002/per.2119


Lievens's proposal that personality psychology would benefit from using applied tools of assessment—situation judgement tests and assessment centre exercises—was appropriate, especially as these tools focus on real-world criteria in high-stakes situations. Their use would help to integrate (specific) situationally influenced intra-individual differences (variability) and (general) inter-individual differences (diversity). Lievens's proposal also raised a broader issue: each assessment tool yields unique information, and together they have potential to provide a truly comprehensive model of personality based on the ‘Cronbachian’ perspective that has, so far, not been realized.
