  Introspection [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Introspection is the process by which someone comes to form beliefs about her own mental states.
As was the case with the infallibility claim, for this claim to be plausible it must presumably be limited to beliefs formed by introspection: if an individual believes on the basis of introspection that she is in a particular mental state, then her belief is justified.
Introspection should likewise be thought of as akin to the kind of theory-laden perception that often goes on in the physical sciences.

  Introspection - LoveToKnow 1911
The introspective method has been adopted by psychologists from the earliest times, more especially by Hobbes, Locke, Berkeley, Hume, and English psychologists of the earlier school.
Such psychological problems as those connected with the emotions and their physical concomitants are especially defective in the introspective method; the fact that one is looking forward to a shock prepared in advance constitutes at once an abnormal psychic state, just as a nervous person's heart will beat faster when awaiting a doctor's diagnosis.
The purely introspective method has of course always been supplemented by the comparison of similar psychic states in other persons, and in modern psycho-physiology it is of comparatively minor importance.

 Classics in the History of Psychology -- Dunlap (1912)
The doctrine of the essentially retrospective nature of 'introspection' is very useful to James in defending the 'transitive' states of consciousness which he admits cannot be discovered by 'introspection.' "For a state of mind to survive in memory, it must have endured for a certain length of time.
I am inclined to suppose that the greater number of those modern writers who explicitly presuppose 'introspection,' have in mind, however dimly, the sort of 'introspection' which Stout defines.[5] The objections to Stout's theory are not of the same order as the objections to the theory of James, although just as profound.
Stated in detail, this sort of 'introspection' is quite clearly the observation of things which are just as objective, considered from the point of view of knowledge, as is the sound; the trouble comes from the fact that we are apt to omit detailed statements.

 Introspection falls
He decided to limit his discussion to English thoughts on introspection, dismissing the German work as “an entirely different piece of work which may or may not be profitable [to discuss]”, saying that he had “no intention of engaging therein”.
Dunlap then moves on to James’ views on introspection, saying that they differed from Stout’s in that James focused more on the “knowing of the knower, not of the knowing” and that James’ introspection was always retrospection.
Dunlap pointed out that those researchers who conduct introspection by describing the bodily sensations which they experience, and even include the actual stimulus of their introspection in their list of sensations, are really only adding a nonsense layer of a phantom observer to their experience.

By practice of introspection, we mean taking five or ten minutes each day to study yourself.
When you have spent ten minutes at this practice, put the film clip aside, even if you were only able to recall a few minutes of your day, or even if you recalled so slowly and thoroughly that your reflection period barely covered five of those waking minutes this morning.
When you find that one period in introspection had not changed an old, deeply ingrained habit, simply determine to keep up the practice one day at a time, until this new state of being becomes your tendency, becomes your habit.
