Here's my internship paper with Francis Tuerlinckx on #measurement/#psychometrics of affect & #ESM using graded-response #IRT.
The main finding:
The state & trait latent constructs of affect—contrary to the common belief—are essentially different.

#THREAD 1/9
Nonergodicity has been heavily ignored in psychology. In the intro we give an extensive historical overview of how this has troubled our idiographic (person-centered) and nomothetic (~individual differences) understanding in psychology—and the way people have tried to fix it.
2/9
In #ESM, sum-scores of PANAS-like positive & negative items are used as constructs of affect—but is that a valid decission?
To account for non-normality (& to allow nonlinearity & check latent nonmonotonicity), we used graded-response item response theory for factor analysis.

Proud that my first paper as first author just got published in @ejpblog! It’s called “Resting Frontal EEG Asymmetry and Personality Traits: A Meta-analysis”. I worked on it with @w_kaeckenmester and Jan Wacker. I’ll explain what we found below! 1/12

onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.100…
Frontal asymmetry describes the difference in brain activity between the left & right frontal cortex and is often measured in the resting state via EEG. It has been used in hundreds of studies as an indicator of motivation, emotion, and psychopathology. 2/12
Research has linked resting frontal asymmetry to personality traits, especially trait approach & withdrawal motivation (BAS & BIS). However, there have been replication issues & it was unclear whether these effects exist & what their magnitude is – so we did a #metaanalysis! 3/12

Last month a friend asked me "what's the best resource you've read thus far on human decision-making?" 1/
After thinking about it, I decided to recommend her one of the first such resources I ever encountered, seven years ago: Doug Hubbard (@hubbardaie)'s How to Measure Anything. 2/ amazon.com/How-Measure-An…
While I don't agree with every word of it, How to Measure Anything is quite possibly the most important and useful book I've ever read on any topic. Here's why. 3/

1/ What's wrong with #lawfirm compensation? Let @jordan_law21 count the ways.As predicted 🔮 (by me, about what I was going to do 😇), a #tweetstorm. First the link: law21.ca/2018/09/how-co…
2/ Next, my favorite #micdrop 🎤 quote: "law firms incentivize their lawyers to act in ways that are counter-productive to lwayers' happiness, clients' satisfaction and the firms' effectiveness." and 💥goes the 🧨-- more #truthbombs follow.
3/ 💯 agree that legacy compensation systems (and the attendant infrastructure of #tech, #process, #policy, governance as well as resulting #culture) emphasizes #lawyer effort over #client outcomes (namely, the billable hour). BUT I add here: what would be a better #alternative?
