Meaningful Differences Between  Individuals There are meaningful differences between individuals: People differ in amounts of traits. Every personality is the product of a combination of a few  basic, primary traits. Consistency Over Time: Research indicates consistency over time for broad traits. How a trait is manifested in behavior might change over  time.

Person-Situation Interaction Two possible explanations for behavior: Behavior is a function of personality traits. Behavior is a function of situation. Integration:  (personality and situation interact to produce behavior) Differences between people make a difference only under certain  circumstances. Situational specificity:  Certain situations can provoke behavior that is  out of character for an individual.
