I recently returned from an awesome SPSP in Atlanta. I had an time catching up with colleagues and returning to a city were I lived in undergrad. Overall, it was a great conference this year; however, I was reminded about one big issue that I have with conferences as a whole: accessibility to presentations and posters.
After reading online about Invisbilia’s latest episode on “The Personality Myth,” I decided to listen to the episode myself to see if the reactions from fellow personality psychologists were hyperbolic. In short, they were not. Chris Soto and Simine Vazire already have excellent, succinct explanations of the flaws of this episode. I also wanted to add my own somewhat longer response as someone who has researched both the stability and change in personality.
