Clarifies the authors' systematic distortion hypothesis (SDH) with reference to the J. Block et al (see record 1980–29222–001) critique. The “bipolar redundancy” effect is found to be an artifact of reduced variance in matrices of uncorrelated traits. It is contended that the SDH remains well supported and that the evidence for the existence of covarying, memory-based ratings remains dubious.
