Sample text

Research in neurochemistry cannot explain how the brain works until we understand how it is wired; changes in brain structure are also associated with learning (Rose, 1992).

Although temperament "bends the twig" by setting limits on the predominant characteristics of any individual, environment plays an important role in shaping personality. The most useful model to explain environmental effects is social learning theory (Bandura, 1977). This theory hypothesizes that behavioral patterns in children are shaped in two ways: by positive and negative reinforcement, and by the modeling of behaviors that children observe in adults. However, there are individual differences in the process of social learning, which reflect the influence of temperament (Rutter, 1987).

It is for this reason that traits are called the dimensions of personality. Many personality characteristics are "ego-syntonic". This means that, in contrast to psychiatric symptoms, which are alien to the self, or "ego-dystonic", "ego-syntonic" traits are considered as normal, or not even apparent, to those who have them. For this reason, studying personality entirely through self-report presents a problem. Certain traits might not even be reported at all. There are advantages in using observations from interviews, or data from informants.
