Subject-specific studies represent an important form of idiographic research which makes use of methodological advancements in both data collection (e.g., ecological momentary assessment) and data analysis (e.g., time series analyses), and may have important implications for the future development of psychological science. One of Peter Molenaar’s most well-known articles has the telling title “A manifesto on Psychology as idiographic science: Bringing the person back into scientific psychology, this time forever.”
