Gerald Matthews on Extraversion - Dictionary of Arguments
Corr I 420
Extraversion/Cognitive-adaptive theory/Matthews: the cognitive-adaptive theory of personality traits (Matthews 1999(1), 2000(2), 2008a(3); Matthews and Zeidner 2004(4)) proposes that traits have functional coherence, not structural coherence.
Extraversion/Matthews: may be seen as an adaptation to socially demanding environments. Cognitive features of Extraversion such as efficient multitasking, verbal skills and rapid response work together to facilitate adaptation. Conversely, the various characteristics of Introversion support adaptation to solitary environments requiring self-direction. >Self-regulation/Matthews.
