This method preserves the entire moment-to-moment behavioral stream; statistically controls for ``autocorrelation,'' a self-regulatory component; determines, by lag correlation, 32 Personality development who in¯uences whom; and identi®es the sign of the in¯uence. A positive sign indicates that the behaviors of the two partners are similar; for instance, when one partner elongates the duration of a vocalization, the other partner does also. A negative sign indicates that the behaviors of the two partners are systematically dissimilar; when one person elongates the duration of vocalization, the other partner shortens the duration.

Large cross-covariances can be totally spurious; that is, the apparent covariation of two processes that are actually uncorrelated may be the result of a large autocorrelation within each process (Gottman and Ringland 1981). Once autocorrelation is controlled, time series regression provides separate indices of each interactant's in¯uence on the other (``lag correlation''). In¯uence is de®ned by the degree to which either partner's behavior can be predicted by the other's. By separately addressing the effects of autocorrelation and lagged correlation, TSR explicitly integrates the contributions of a self-regulatory component with interactive regulation in its strategy of analysis.
