Abstract

"The present study was concerned with two problems: an investigation of the reliability of the interaction chronograph as an instrument of research and the corollary problem of the variance or invariance of interaction patterns of patients during a standardized psychiatric interview . . . The highly significant correlations obtained indicate reliability of the instrument and a marked invariance or stability in patient interaction patterns when the stimulus conditions are relatively standardized (inter-interviewer consistency) and a flexibility in these interaction patterns when these stimulus conditions are changed in a predefined manner (intra-interviewer variance).
