Behavior/environment/differences/Ackerman: the traditional goal of personality assessment is to determine how an individual would behave when there is little or no environmental press on his/her behaviour (i.e., weak situations). Part of the rationale that underlies this approach is that the variability in behaviour across different individuals is expected to be much more restricted when the environmental press or situation is a strong one.
Intelligence: Intellectual abilities, on the other hand, are traditionally assessed under ‘maximal’ performance conditions. (Ackerman 1996)(1).
