Accuracy in personality judgment

David Funder
Riverside, California

I am putting the final touches on a book about my approach to the study of accuracy in personality judgment, to be published by Academic Press. It presents the "Realistic Accuracy Model" and its mostly-Brunswikian philosophical underpinnings. If anyone who reads this would like one or more chapters to read in draft form I would be happy to e-mail them. However, the cost for this is that one must promise to provide criticism in time for me to do something about it. The tentative chapter titles are:

1. Approaching accuracy (general introduction)

2. The very existence of personality

3. Error and accuracy in the study of personality judgment

4. Methodological and philosophical considerations

5. The process of accurate personality judgment

6. Moderators of accuracy

7. Self-knowledge

8. Prospects for improving accuracy
