  1. a does a measure asses what its intended to measure?
  2. b how many traits do we study?
    ex. the Big 5
  3. c when the correlation is -1.0
  4. d one problem with the experimental method - the extent to which we can generate our findings to the real world - experiments are low on this
  5. e words that we use to describe someone - use them to understand and predict behavior; they need to be stable across time and situations in order for the characteristic to be considered a personality trait - internal cause of behavior and descriptive summaries
