Abstract

Recent investigations have suggested that personality measures based on a maximal format are superior to those based on a typical format. The results of the present study suggest that peer reports and self-reports of a subject’s maximal expression of aggression are more reliable predictors of the subject’s laboratory behavior than are their reports of the subject’s typical expression of aggression.
