Settings on personality traits: a parallel world of individual differences
Together with Sergey Shchebetenko we discussed what a person thinks and how he evaluates his personality traits, which we reveal in questionnaires.
Usually we judge personality traits by the answers given by the person who completes the questionnaire. In such questionnaires, we usually ask about how this person behaves and what he is. This is an empirical indicator of personality traits. But what does a person think about this feature? How does he appreciate it? How good or bad is it - from his or her point of view? Will such a setup on the line explain the interrelations that we get between this line and various events in a person's life? Will the installation on the line explain the behavior of a person - even when the line itself is not connected with it? Do men and women have different attitudes to features, and will these attitudes explain the sex differences in the personality traits themselves? Will the traits and attitudes to the traits change under the influence of the argument as a result of the experiment?
