What criticisms do modern Psychologists make at Introspection?

Mainly that it is unreliable -- different people "introspect" different things when faced with what would seem to be the same experience. There was a long thread about introspection at: http://hv.greenspun.com/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg.tcl?msg_id=0052vp
Also see Knight Dunlap's classics paper, "The case against introspecion" (1912). You can find it on-line at: http://psychclassics.yorku.ca/Dunlap/introspection.htm
