Abstract

Recent reports have suggested that both self-consciousness and typical-maximal measures interact with the accuracy of subject-peer agreement. The current paper investigated (a) whether differing leVeles of a peer's private and public self-consciousness would also interact with subject-peer agreement, and (b) whether typical-maximal measures would interact with subject and peer self-consciousness. Results indicated that in every case in which there was a significant self-consciousness effect, there was also a corresponding interaction of self-consciousness with typical-maximal. These results suggest that maximal ratings may be preferable to typical ratings in the prediction of criterion behaviors.
