Annual Review of Psychology, 48, 537–558. 2 Time Sampling Diary An Ecological Approach to the Study of Emotions in Everyday Life Situations Hermann Brandsta¨tter F ollowing the flow of a person’s daily activities over a long period of time is not just difficult, it is virtually impossible. A person moving around all the time, pursuing simultaneously several goals, entering inaccessible private settings, protecting thoughts and feelings against unwanted detection by partners in interactions or from observers—, all this makes observation and recording extremely cumbersome.

Thus, it is by no means clear whether the pattern of effects of the partners’ extraversion and some other findings will be replicable in further studies. The results may seem plausible, but plausibility alone is not a good guide in accumulating scientific knowledge. Would it be, for example, less plausible if we had found that similarity and not complementarity on the dimension emotionality vs. rationality fosters mutual acceptance? Anyway, I am curious whether these patterns can also be found in future TSD studies with married couples.
