Abstract

The problem of the perception of other persons was studied by comparing obtained scores and forecast scores on a series of 3 scales. Low positive correlations resulted. There was no apparent consistency in forecasting ability. It was concluded that the study demanded keener observations than are generally made in social situations. “The present study does not yet offer evidence of a differential ability in the exacting task of consistently forecasting the verbal responses to a personality scale of another person well known to the forecaster.” (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
