This chapter provides a summary of the first section of the book, titled “Behavior and Intra-Individual Processes.” Chapters in this section provide a diverse set of views on the relationship between various individual differences and behaviors. Some of those individual differences—for example, attitudes, emotions and personality—have been central to social psychology for a long time. Some of the described approaches can be traced back a fair number of years as well. Yet, almost without exception, the clarion cry of these chapters is for more sophisticated theoretical treatment or empirical measurement of those individual differences, of behavior, or of the relationship between the two. With such sophistication, it is hoped, the “nature” of individuals’ behavior will become more evident and the need for miracles will diminish.

Keywords:   behavior, individual differences, measurement, social cognition, social psychology
