It is shown that several variants of the Tucker-Messick points of view procedure are interpretable in terms of their “idealized individual” concepts. It is contended that the main function of the method is that it allows the computation ofseveral vectors of mean judgments instead of only one and that each of these may be used to stand for the actual judgments of a subgroup of subjects. Vectors that do not correspond to the judgments of any subjects are to be avoided. It is alleged that Ross's interpretation of “points of view” is quite different from that intended by Tucker and Messick.
