In Stories We Trust: Studies of the Validity of Autobiographies.
Howard, George S.; And Others
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v39 n3 p398-405 Jul 1992
Conducted studies using two perspectives for obtaining evidence relevant to validity of autobiographical data. In Study 1, construct validity of standard psychological constructs (assertiveness, trustworthiness) obtained from autobiographies was equal to that of standard instruments designed to assess these constructs. Evidence for validity of life themes, extracted from autobiographies in Study 2, was also apparent. (Author/NB)
