What is Situationism?

Psychological theory that started in 1968 at the time when the debate on "person-situation" was triggered through a monograph publication by Walter Mischel. It is an approach to art behavior that states that there are no general traits. It holds that behavior is externally influenced by situational factors from environment rather than motivations and internal traits. It thus challenges trait theorists like Raymond B. Cattel and Hans Esyenck. Major movement linked to situationism is "Situationist International" founded by Asger Jorn.
