  2. Changethe amount of a trait which is different, either increased or decreased (degree rather than kind)


  3. Internal Validityone problem with the experimental method - the extent to which we can generate our findings to the real world - experiments are low on this


  4. Continuitydoes a measure asses what its intended to measure?


  5. Taxonomieshow many traits do we study?
    ex. the Big 5
