Personality Psychology/Asendorpf: words, personality psychology is concerned with those temporally stable tendencies of behaviour in which persons of a similar age differ from one another. Temporally stable tendencies of behaviour are called dispositions in psychology but also other sciences such as medicine, biology and physics. Dispositions that characterize the personality of an individual are called personality dispositions, or personality traits (Allport 1937(1); Funder 1991(2)). >Personality Traits, >Personality Types.
