Abstract and Keywords

Given that accurate trait judgments are related to myriad positive characteristics and outcomes, this chapter focuses on approaches for improving trait judgment accuracy. The chapter outlines potential trait judgment training approaches aligned with the realistic accuracy model (RAM) and presents available evidence from previous training research in other domains of person perception and basic personality research. In addition, the chapter examines how characteristics of the trait, target, and judge can potentially impact training effectiveness. More research is needed to develop effective, generalizable, and impactful training interventions for personality and trait judgment accuracy.
