One could build up a taxonomic model incrementally by developing successively more and more measures, each constructed to predict some important human outcome. This is the approach that Gough (1996) espoused in developing the California Psychological Inventory (CPI). Although Gough did not initially aspire to create a comprehensive taxonomy, analyses of the interrelations among the CPI scales eventually led him to develop some summary dimensions to encompass them. The measures developed by this practical approach typically have empirical strengths, but they are not theoretically organized and may omit important constructs that no one happened to think of investigating.
