Getting back to flexible measures:

The Buss Teacher-Learner approach seems to fit. Thankfully one set of authors was unwittingly honest enough to demonstrate.

We're more likely to see the CRTT used these days, but that more updated approach has been shown to be problematic. Those of us who genuinely care about aggression research need to do better. We need to know that our techniques are reliable, that they can be validated, that their administration and analysis can be standardized. Until then, we have no idea what we are really measuring, and simply finding a p<.05 isn't cutting it.
