Behavior/Eysenck: Gray faced two major problems: first, how to identify brain systems responsible for behaviour; and, secondly, how to characterize these systems once identified. The individual differences perspective is one major way of identifying major sources of variation in behaviour; by inference, there must be causal systems (i.e., sources) giving rise to observed variations in behaviour. Hans Eysenck’s (1947(1), 1957(2), 1967(3) approach was to use multivariate statistical analysis to identify these major sources of variation in the form of personality dimensions.
