This paper is an attempt to bring clarity to idiographic theory and research in psychology by delineating 3 different types of idiographic research: research not assuming general laws, unique manifestation research, and intraindividual research. These 3 research types use different methods, make different assumptions, and have different relationships to the nomothetic mainstream. The relatively harmonious relationships between unique manifestation research, intraindividual research, and the nomothetic mainstream suggest that these research lines will form an essential part of 21st century psychology, whereas the original conception of idiographic research as research that does not assume general laws will continue slowly to die out. These conceptual advances imply that the single debate over nomothetic-idiographic research should be closed.
