Marvin Zuckerman on Personality Traits - Dictionary of Arguments
Corr I 327
Personality traits/Zuckerman: Zuckerman(1) linked personality traits to underlying behavioural mechanisms, which he in turn linked to the brain functions of various neurotransmitters, hormones and enzymes. One notable feature of his theorizing is that he described behavioural mechanisms (including approach, inhibition and arousal) as determined by multiple biological systems and as contributing to multiple traits. In his model, for example, approach is influenced by both dopamine and testosterone and contributes to both Sociability and Impulsive Sensation-Seeking. >Personality traits/Cloninger, CloningerVsZuckerman, ZuckermanVsCloninger.
