Walter Mischel on Interactionism - Dictionary of Arguments

Corr I 48
Interactionism/Mischel/Asendorpf: If each person’s score depends upon only a few observations for each situation, a large portion of the situation by person interaction will very likely be due to measurement error. Only if the situational differences within persons are reliable (as in the study by Shoda, Mischel and Wright 1994)(1) does it make sense to interpret the person by situation interaction at all. >Interactionism/Asendorpf
