Differential psychology/Stern/Lamiell: Stern coined the expression in Stern 1900(1) , 1911(2)).
Lamiell: Significantly, however, Stern did not regard the assessment and study of individual differences as suitable for advancing our understanding of personalities (or what he termed ‘individualities’). On the contrary, he saw (correctly) that studies of individual differences generate knowledge of person variables, and that what is needed in any psychology of personality worthy of the name is knowledge of persons.
Unfortunately, but for reasons I have thoroughly discussed elsewhere (see esp. Lamiell 2003(3), ch. 5), this distinction was all but obliterated by developments within the field during the first three decades of the twentieth century – against Stern’s strenuous and repeatedly-voiced objections (see Lamiell 2006)(4). This most unfortunate historical development is a major source of current conceptual difficulties within the field.
