In the focal article, Weiss and Rupp (2011) argued for a person-centric focus on conducting research in industrial-organizational (I-O) psychology. According to them, it is fundamentally important to study work from a subjective stance to understand workers' lived-through experiences. We agree with the focal article's emphasis on adopting a more person-centric perspective in I-O psychology research. In this commentary, we provide some additional insights into the tradition, nature, and research methods of person-centric work psychology.
