Philip J. Corr on Measurements - Dictionary of Arguments

Corr I 368
Measurement/personality levels/Reinforcement SensivityTheory/Corr: if we want to measure separable causally-efficient systems in the brain (i.e., FFFS (Fight–Flight–Freeze System; >Terminology/Corr
), BIS (Behavioural Inhibition System; >Terminology/Corr) and BAS (Behavioural Approach System)), then we should opt for specific personality questionnaires that faithfully measure the activity of these systems. On the other hand, if we want to measure the net product of the interplay of these systems, then we should opt for Eysenckian-type personality questionnaires that measure broad dimensions of personality (e.g., >Extraversion and >Neuroticism) relating to broad neurophysiological factors (e.g., arousal).
