124 undergraduates were administered the Self-Monitoring Scale and asked to respond to personality traits for themselves or another person. Ss with high self-monitoring scores were particularly skilled at constructing informative images of individuals who were prototypic examples of each of a variety of trait domains; low self-monitoring Ss were particularly skilled at constructing informative images of their characteristic selves in each trait domain.
