Interaction/personality traits/measurement/LamiellVsTradition/Lamiell: instead of a normative measurement of persons in order to come to a characterization of persons (see >measurement/Lamiell) we need in interactive approach (see >person/Lamiell, >Allport/Lamiell, >comparisons/Lamiell).
The lesson here is that considerations of an essentially interactive sort must inevitably be invoked in person characterization even where one’s ultimate ultimate objective is to derive normative characterizations. The converse of this is not true: characterizations grounded in considerations of an interactive nature can be formulated meaningfully wholly apart from considerations of a normative nature.
