Dispositional Traits versus the Content of Experience: Actor/Observer Differences in Judgments of the "Authentic Self."
Johnson, Joel T.; Boyd, Kenneth R.
Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, v21 n4 p375-83 Apr 1995
Investigated whether actors and observers differ in their beliefs about what features of an individual best reflect his/her "authentic self." Results indicate that actors' views differed significantly from observers'. Friend raters believed that their friends' dispositional traits were better indicators than what their friends actually did, thought, or felt. (RJM)
