William Stern on Measurements - Dictionary of Arguments

Corr I 83/84
Measurement/differential psychology/personality psychology/Stern/Lamiell: when Stern turned his attention to the topic of ‘principles of personality measurement’, as he did in chapter VI of his 1918 book, Die menschliche Persönlichkeit [The human personality] (Stern 1918)(1), he explicitly distanced himself from the logic of normative measurement, arguing that ‘the comparison of many personalities’ to one another would be beside the point, ‘since the problem at hand pertains specifically to the relationship between the person and his/her world’ (Stern 1918, pp. 186–7). See >Measurement/Cattell.
