Walter Mischel on Situations - Dictionary of Arguments
Corr I 28
Situations/Mischel/VsMischel/Funder: However, even though the past half-decade of social psychological literature has granted the lion’s share of explanatory power to situational forces, still missing is any real technology for defining, for characterizing, or measuring them. This lack has been noted repeatedly: Swann and Seyle (2005)(1) argue that certain current avenues of research (such as Mischel and Shoda’s (1999)(2) CAPS model) will not recognize their full potential until ‘the development of a comprehensive taxonomy of situations’ (Swann and Seyle 2005, p. 162). Mischel himself once suggested that describing differences in situations might be more productive than describing the behaviours of people in them (Mischel and Peake 1983)(3). See Situations/Asendorpf, >Situations/Funder.
