Personality/evolutionary psychology/Buss: Buss and Greiling 1999)(1) whose personality theory suggests that individual differences lead to differences in the effectiveness with which people can adopt different strategies in our complex social groups. Furthermore, Buss has suggested that people are especially aware of personality variation among group members because it is something that must be noticed and contended with in order to be successful in our daily interactions. MacDonald (e.g., 1995(2), 1998(3)) has taken a similar approach to explaining the adaptive nature of personality differences and expanded it a step further. >Personality/MacDonald, >Heritablity/Tooby/Cosmides.
