Halo error is the tendency for an evaluator to let the assessment of an individual in one trait influence his or her appraisal of that person on other traits.

Similarity error is when evaluators rate other people by giving special consideration to those qualities that they perceive in themselves. Stephen P Robbins, Essentials of Organizational Behavior (6th ed.), 1999

It is irrational to measure an individual's total human worth on the basis of some [single] trait, behavior, accomplishment or other attribute. Albert Ellis and Raymond J Yeager, Why Some Therapies Don't Work: The Dangers of Transpersonal Psychology, 1989

Acts, and even habits, that are inconsistent with a trait are not proof of the nonexistence of the trait. Gordon W Allport, Personality and Social Encounter, 1960
