Personality Measures Analyzed in Terms of the Temperament Framework

  • Mehrabian Albert 


In Chapter 1, evidence was reviewed from a variety of areas of psychologic research pointing to the fundamental relevance of three low-level cognitive and correlated emotional factors in human behavior. If, in fact, pleasure-displeasure, arousal-nonarousal, and dominance-submissiveness are necessary and sufficient to describe and measure emotional states, then an analogous set of dimensions may be highly relevant for measuring and describing average or characteristic emotional reactions of individuals (i.e., their emotional traits or temperament).
