We would like to thank Grant Edmonds and Joshua Jackson for their helpful comments on an earlier draft of this article. We are particularly grateful to Michael Chmielewski and David Watson for providing the two-week dependability estimates of the Big Five Inventory (BFI) items, which afforded a much expanded consideration of the role of transient measurement error toward the research questions in this investigation. Note that the BFI dependability estimates used here are reported at the BFI scale level in Chmielewski and Watson (), and many of the Inventory of Individual Differences in the Lexicon dependability estimates are reported in Wood, Nye, and Saucier ().
