What is the primary distinction between states and traits?

▸ Traits can be measured using the methods of psychological science, whereas states cannot.

▸ States reflect characteristics of an individual, whereas traits reflect characteristics of a group of people.

▸ Traits are long-lasting characteristics of an individual, whereas states are transient and changeable.

▸ States are conceptualized as continuous characteristics, whereas traits are seen as distinct categories.
