speilberger 1972
traight anxiety: a person usual or t ypical level of anxiety (ie chronic worier, would be exceptionaly high in trait anxiety)
state anxiety: the current or momentary feeling of anxiety experinced at a specific poitn in time.
level of state anxiety
is a joint function of levels of trait anxiety and situational experiences
personaly factors account for 10% of the variance in behavoir while situational factors accountred for almost 13% of the varaince.
cardinal traits
often refered to as supertraits
allport and dobert (super traits)
allport and obdert ammased 36,000 terms and adjectives,
lexical aproach
the tendency to ammas personality characteristics out language
Cattell (1943) (lexical) approach
reduced thousands of adjectives into 132 term and then reduced htem further to just 35 terms, used a statistical approach known as factor analysis
Cattel 16 personaly factor system
based on his factor analysis?
Eysenecks PEN model: extroversion/ intro version

Block ego control and ego resilancy
ego control: personal degree of impulse control, including control of emotional and motivational tendiecies
ego resiliency: is ability to alter behvoir, according to situational demands
Nagin and Trebmly 2001
developmental trajectories are levels of particualr behvoir over time. Flat trajectory, declined trajectory in relation to levels of agression.
allports bold assumptions
1) a personality trait ahs more than a nominal exisitance, allport believed that personality traiths are real entities taht reside within people the concepted fo a trait is not simply a metaphor or symbol
2) a personalitry trait is more generalized than habit, allporot believed tha tpersonaly traits tend to be manifest across situations and life circumstances. this asseration ahs resulted in research on cross situational consistency
3) a personally trait may be established empirically
4) a personality trait is only relatively independent of other traits: the content a nd processes associated with certain traits often overlap kind and altruisitic, behvoir could be enacted by multiple traits
5) a personality trait may be viewed either in the light of personality which it contains if or in teh light of its distribution of the population at large
6) acts and even habits that are inconsistnent with a trait are not proof of non existence of that trait

common traits cardinal traits
traits that everyone shares, allport put more of a empahsis on unique traits, a person could be chartarized by one or two cardinal dispositions that are central to thier personality as well as 5 central dispositions that are less obvous and less generalized yet still key components of personality.
White effecience Theory
argued that we all have the drive to be competent and a drive to demonstrate impact on outher people and object the self.
Mischells Challenge to the Trait approach
1) traits are poor predictors of behvoirs in situation with correlations between trait measures and behvoiral measure in situations being relatively low
2) the situaiton is better than personality traits in seeking to account for individual differnces in behvoirs
personality coefficeint was .3

Hans Eysnick
psotulated a heirachal model of personality that had four levels of specific cognitions
1)personality state
2) actual acts or cognitions
3) trait level - significant intercorrealtions between habitual behvoirs and a realted theme.
4) order traits or borad dimension. (ie extroversion introversion ) (more work)

Played a important role in the emergence of the five factor model advanced the arguement for including coneincousnes.
Revell and Mcadams
Cfritizesed the five factor models (to descriptive)
Cattel (personality sphere)
suggested that our overachring goal should be to get an unbaised estimate of the whole in term of toality of human behavoir. he coined he term personality sphere
developed the term, Locust of control. which refers to invidiual differnces in internal verse external control and reinforcement.
Levinsons IPC Locust of control Scale.
measures are culturally senstive
cohort effect, invove changes in locust control over time. more changes in women.
Desire for control
reserach tells us whether a person feels the he or she is in control of the outcomes or is in control by factors outside of self. Buger and cooper desire for control scale. depression assocaited with a external locust of control
Gerbarld and BRosschot 2002 (LOC)
isolate three factors within the desire for control scale
1)desire to change and control other
2) desire to establish a sence of control
3)willingness to reliquish control to outhers

Digman and chldren
confirmed the existance of the five factor model in children
these big personality factors becoem evident early in life.
Zang et all 2002
chinese prents spontaneously generate more description that reflect consceincousnes category than dutch parents, in these studies you ask parents to describe the kids
a cross culural study about lying.
lie scores greater in collectivist cultures, becuase lieing is assocaited with social desiraiblity. (zhang.)
Cross sequencial study
chose a group of people, but you choes numerous groups, study numerous groups in a longitiudal mannter.
W. James 1890m
Plastiscity: is the possession of a structure weak enough to yeild in influnce but strong enough not to yeild al at once. (gradual evolving change in personality)as you become older your brain becomes mroe plaster and more rigid.
Mcae and Costa: master theory
personality is pretty well fixed by age 30, some psychologists beleive that personality disorder are plter difficult to cahgne as opposed to mood disordres.
Butteryfly effect
a small change can lead to a very large effect
Power of Continuity
a large change may have no predictable effect, it may be insocnqiencal, someitmes significant events dont change much
Soldz and Valliant 1999 - ipsative stability
means measuring yourself against yourself, concerned with comparing a persons performance on a taks wiht that same person over time. compare same behvoir in the same person over time. some psychologist are more concered with rank that isalative stability ( ie ordinal position on a skale
Ender and Caspo (1988)
personality and stress are related
life stressors tend in increase the stability of personality traits over tiem becuase peopel respond to lfe stress by returnign to familiar ways and tendeices. (sressors exxagerate or acentuarge exisiting psychologicl features. (if your understres you giong ot use ure first language) somtimes stresfull situations change perosnality if the stresssors maybe highly incogruent with existing personality tendieces.
Loehiln Et Al. 1985
found little resemblance in thier presonalites of children and thier adoptie parents as well as little resemblance between adoptive siblings.
- families that adopt end up not being very similar to each other even though there raised in the same setting.
Rothbard and putnam 2002 - temperment
temperment is not the what of behvoir but the how of behvoir, differances are often releted in differnces in style expressive behvoirs
Thomas and Chess
Used temperament dimensions to distinquish 3 types of children
1)the easy child
2) the difficutl child
3) the slow to warm up child

TC easy child
40%, even tempered typically postive, quite adaptive, predicatble habits
TC diffucult child
about 10%, active irrratabel, nd irregual habits often react vigorously and negatively to change in routine
relativly slow to adapt to new people and new circumsntaces
TC slow to warm up child
finally the slow to warm up child quite inactive and moody
similar to dificut in being slow to adapt, but much less demonstrative than diffcult children
Thomas and Chess 1989 (goodnes poornes fit)
attribute these outcomes to goodness or poornes of fit n terms of childs characteristics and environment.
parental treatment can reinforce or exsaservate pre existin differances in temperment, but by the same token, parental treatment extinguish or mute tempermental characteristics. ie if child is diffuclt and mother is an extrovert not as big a deal. somtimes if their diffuct a mom might just say the hell withit.
Kagen et al
focused on temperment in the form of behvoiral inhibition
about 10% of hcidlren are severl u inhbiyted. gender and cultural differances come to play wehen prediting long term success with these children conclusion, therfor shyness is less likely to be rewarded in Us than in Sweeden
1998 squeaky wheel Hypothesis, t

Diana bumring 1917 and parenting styles
Authoritarain: over invovled with thier children by bieng to restrictive punative and over controling
they dont want you to rationalize or argue with them
Permissive: show little invovlemnt and may seem disinterested in thier children, allow a child to engage in wahtever acitvies, no expecations
Authortitative: limites and rules but they can be expressed with warmth and a open diaglogue

Diana Buamring continued
children respond to peceived harshness fo thier parents by externalizing or interralizing problems. leads to poorer intelecual and social development
exteralzing = hyperaitivy
interalizingt = deprssion.
authortiraina dn permssive lead to negatige outcomes.

Hoffmans categories of Discipline : power assertion
power assertion: using rewards and punishments (used with care usualy a short cut to get kid to do what you want them to do.
Hoffman : love withdrawal
expressign dissaproval of a child rather than a action, more commonly used wiht mothres than fathers
verbal reasoning, most diffuct time, becuase of time, requires patines, best though
influence is bidirection
the concept of self socialization is baed on the realiztion tht a developing child can make choices and act in such a manner as to infleucne the feedback recevied form others and situations.
Harris 1998, parents/ child interaction
parents actions or interaction contribute little to the child interactions i thier personality development, main factors are genetects and infleunces of peer group
Mcrae (role of culture) 2004
culuture doe snot have an effect on personality, but personality has an effect on culture
Deater decard and doge 1997
parental physical discipline is assocated with agressive behbvoir in european american children but these varibles are either not assocateed or are assocaited negativly with aferican americna children. (key weather physical discipline is approriate within the culture)
its absolut e forbidden in sweeedn.
invovles a extensive self focus on the indivual and his or her immedate family
invoes much more of a group empahsis and fostering the cnnection between self and outher people ie china japan but all new genrations are less collectivistic

Type B children
respond more sloly when working on a task without a time contrain but act similiary when given a time constrain. act like type A
Fiedman and Ulmer 1984

Steinberg 1987 imapience anger compnent
impatince anger compnent was found amoung adolsene with temperments incovling low adaptiily lwo persistne and low sensory threshold.
Rosenman inheratble type a
tyoe a behvoir has inhreatible genetic componentt
Wiedener et all (200): type a biolocal part
the inherted biological component is most evident in the indivudal differnces in cynical hostility: pessimistic belevies adout the world and outher people in type A
Matthews yout test for health 1978
testing type a behboir
1) competivness
2) impatience agression.
hostility seems to be a active ingreedient in health problems

Keltikangas - jarvinen and Heinonen 2003 - type a families
1) family that is not type A
2) family that is descibed as "postive family type A
3) negatie type a family

people with toxic type a have low life sasisfaction and vise versa

it is a feeling that you may experience after success, invovles telling yourself i did it this time but i dont deserve it feeling of i was succesfull due to luck only today, fee like they dont deserve it
John et al Little five
Connotes the test for the five factor model for young people. this study confimred the existance of the five factor s and two outher which were identified as irritaibiy and acitivty
russian children, reported three tenths of parents spontaneously described thier children in ways that touch on all fiv efactors and almost 7 /10 of partnes provided the descriptions that touched on four factors.
Eysenicks big three in children
Nueroctism, extroversion and psychotism (may require some modification
mean level stability
longitudinal investigation in which the same sample of particpants followed over time an means omapred acors tim e
Moskowitz, Zurkoff (2004)
flux: somone who is high in interpersonal sensitivy and is quite reactive to feedback fro others often by responding in kind

Pulse: invididual differences in the overall extremity of interpersonal behvoir
spin: indiviudal differences in differant interperosnal styles (nice to somone hostile to outher one)

Bell and Chapman 1973 biderectionality
parents and children influence eachouther.
self socialization: is based on the realization that a developing child can make choices and act in such a manner as to influence the feedback received from outehr sitations that he or she experinces.
Rogosch and Cicetti
parenting styles
parental harshness can have very disasterous effect on personality development
comapred 135 maltreatd children
tenembum and lempkin schema
significant correaltion betwwen parents and thier childrens gender schemas
Hofstede 2001
examined the link between indivudalism and extroversiona robust assocation.
Karen Mathews
poineer in the feild of personaly psychology, Matheys you test for health see outher cue
Random assignment
particpants are allocated randomly into subgroups, when you draw fom a population its random
Moderator or interaction effect
the effect of an independant varible is influened by a level of anouther independant varible (see notes if confused)
Meditaor effects pg 20
if a factor is a mediator this suggests that the link betwee a varaible and anouther varible exists primarily of thier mutual link with anouther interveing varible that influence both these varibles
Baron and Kennys 1986 criteria for Mediation
a significant assocation between predictor varible and t he criterion varible
a signicnat assocaiton between predictor varible and medaitor varible
and meditor vaible must be a signicant predictor of the criterion varible

active model
there are three addtive effects if both types of factors are significant but contirbutue indepdnatly to the predictions of anouther actor
Demand Characterstics
most people in experimental studies have a great desire to please the experimetn. , they will try t0 fulfill thier role as a good expeirment by guessing the hypthesis and then trying to get it.
Median split
potenitally valuable information is low becuase a range of scores is transformed into a categorical varible.
50 higher 50 lower , advatnage equal # in both groups
tertial split
dis: does not gauratnee equal #
advant: dont lose data you can create as many groups as you want but have to explain the cutt of points. (you need a big sample)
Robinson 1989 ambiverts
have an optimal level of arousal and optimal functioning in terms of intellegence extreme introversion or extroversion have assocaited levels of arousal that limit intellgence.
Regression to the mean
some people will have high scores becuase they are actually high on the attribute but other people will appeal to ahve high scores becuase scores are inflated by measurement erro4r
carlson 1971
71% of studies were exiermental in ature, does this genarlize (external valdity)
Endler and spreer
2/3 studies reviwed by ender and speer were baed on data provided by university students.
sears 1986 stundents and external validity
we can realy genaerlize it if were usaing all studntes, mudy break the dependancy on the narrow database
endler and speer 1998 cros sec
only 3% are longitudinal., most predominant method was statisical method was correlation. , no causal realtionship
Block 1977: (L data, ) O Data, T data
L data - life recond inclduing indivudal faily occuaptional and marital pasts
o data - rating an indivudal by her peers or family members
tdata- performance tests, measure of behvoir and other objective labratory measurement.

L data
L- Data: the life record including an individuals family occupational and marital pasts
O-Data (block)
rating an indivudal by her peers or family member (observer judgment)
block T data
performance tests, mmeasure behvoir in a lab
negative correlation
exist when there is a liner assocaition between varibles such taht as one varible tend to icnrease the other varible tends to decrease to a coresponding degree
cohen and corelation coeficinets
suggested that correaltional coefficients in the order of .1 are small, correlation coeficins about .3 is meduim and .5 is large
HEmphil 2003 asprin
even a .03 correaltionc an have a great impact on saving lifes
directionality issue
if two varaibles are related all that can be stated is that they are asocaited with eachouther it cannot be assumed that the variblity associted with one carible cuased or contributed to the varible of the other varible
structured vs unstructrued assesments
structured assesments are close ended scales in which the scale content has already been determioend by teh people who ahve constructed the meaures and the particpants inidicated thier responce to each itep by selceting an obpetion, an open ended ended scale peopel geerate thjier responces , unstructed assesment can be in the form verbal resp0oncses given during an interview
se;f report measures and thier limitations
Krugger and dunning 1999
validit y is regarded wit h sceptiscms
a very large portion of college students who are not skilled beleive they are, self deception
people with high self deception were rated by aqaintences as arrogant hostile, low in warmth and overconfidence about thier true abilities.
Social desirability bias
people have a general tendency to create a postive impression in the eye of other peopela dn one way they can accomplish this is is to answer personality items in a way that makes them appear disriable and importnat.
tomaka blasovich and kelsey 1992 , impression managment
provided clear evidence showing that it is possible to empiracly distinguish impression management and self deception
showed theaat people who had high self deception appraised the looming tasks as less threatening and objective measures showed that people high in self deception were less reactive during the acual task
MCrae and Costa 1983
social disirability
amoung others have argued that individual differences in social disirability reflect persoanly triats that is of interest in its own right, not simply as a variable of neucsience.
they found that particpants with high levels of social disirabiliy were related by both themselves and by the information as being high in trait leves of conscousneess and low in neurotisicm. it is a personality construct of importance.
Flett 1988 impression managment
both impression managment and self deception infleuicne self reports of emtional expeirnce . higher levels of impression managment were associated with reproted experince of negative emtionas that were less frequent and insense and shorter in duringtion.
self deceptions was associated with less negative emitons and more psotive ratings of postive emotions.
Personality measures to select employeees.
subsequent research showed that both high consceinousness and low neutois were good predictors of job performance.
use of latency based time indences
ahsoton - forced choice options are better inorder for people not to lie.

Funder 1980
postivity bias
found that agreement between self reprots and informant ratings were high when traits high in social desirability are being rated.
tendencies to describe traits to the target person who is being evualted is postiviity bias.
Suadanon 2000
temperments of related babies were quite similar but thier mothers reported them as being quite differant.
shows observer bias.
problems associated with the internet (johnson)
submission fo duplicate protocols
failures to fully read items
an unacceptable number of missing responces
carless completion of protocol

goldberg and smith and E honesty
internet faciliates hoensty, people lack the eithical debreifing though
Douglass jackson 1970
4 principles PTD
4 principles of personality test development
1) overriding importance of psychological theory
2) need to supress responce style varaince
3) the importance of establishing a convergent and disciminative validy of a measure at the start of the deveopment process.

Nomological network
must be outlined as part of the initial process, the nomological network consits of the factors and varibles that are theoreticaly related to the construct in question
Differential reliablity index
to evaluate wwheter a particualr test item has to high a correaltion with a measure of social desirability
Internal consistency
Homogenity exists if all scale items are tapping the same construct and there are high correlation between the item and the toal scores of items that make up the intended factor being measured
Lee Chronback 1951 alpha
introduce the alpha coeficcient, which is based o the degree of intercorelations amoung scale items. a good nubmer is .7
test re test relaiblity
is the stability of test scores over time and
Constuct validity
to what extent does a measure reflect an abstract hypothetical personality differences (or question your asking)
content validity
does a measure have breadth because it has items that fully asses the peronaly construct in question.
Criterion validity
is the measure assocated with other measures it should be realted to either measured at the same time or later in time.
Discriminant validity
is a measure unrelated to a measure that it should be not related to.
ecological validity
does the measure predict meaningfull outcomes in the enviroment.
factorial validity
does the hypothses factor strucre of the emaure replciate when tested via factor analysis.
incremental validity:
does the measure predict significant unique varince in the outcome varible and beyond the varible attrubatble to anouther predicted varible.
back translation
it is perfered when translating in a scale to anouther languaage inorder to maximase language tranlsation.
sigment freud intro
he emphasised on the role of unconscous infleunce on our conscouss behbvoirs, thoughs and feelings
he used the introspective method; analysis of ternal thoughts and images including dreams
he baesed his theory at least in part on his own personal introspectiosn adn self anlaysis, his approach was retrospective.

super ego =

conscience+ ego ideal, obeys morality principle

it operates on the perfection prcinciple, the notion that we must act perfectly by meeting soceital dictates, which often come in the form of endorsing and intrenalzing our parents values

instincual drives fueled by libido, obeys pleasure principle ,
can be satisfies with primary process thinking, which is fantasies.
mediator between ego adn super ego, obeys reality , determined primarly by a persons experinces , delay gratification until the right time and right place.
both the id and superego are infleunced by the past
the id reflects impact of heredity while the superego reflects the infuence of signifcant others in early life
the super ego could also reflect the influce of later succesor such as teachers and public figures who coem to represtn social ideals.
Freuds stages theory of psychosexual development
freud beleived that personality developes during a series of psychsexual stages. at each stage a particulr area of the body is the main source of pleasure and sexual gratification for the id and its impluses.

results from getting to much or too litle gratifcation. the adult personality is a reflection of how these early stages of childhood are dealt with and resolved.
Neurotic anxiety
ego is pressured with the id
realistic anxeity
ego has problem with reality, has problems with external world rather than interanal.
defence mechanisms
unconscious strategies that help by warding of anxiety
they help the id express some of its engery so that the id does not get out of controla nd become too overwhelming
adaptive and maladaptive defense differ not only in temrs of thier maturity but also in terms of thier conscous awareness.
10% of ourselfs is in conscouss awareneess
90% is unconsous or the pre concouses, the goal is to bring this to the center in psychonalysis.
Wish fullfillment
Fantasies relfect whishes adm baser desires of the ID
sex instinct (part of the ID)
death instict part of id
Odipus complex / electra complex
we come to internalize parents value as a way of resolving the odipus complex at age 4 they coert opposate sex parents.
balanced betwen love of his mother and fear of his father and castration anxiety
penis envy
girls sufferr from penis envy, they can compnste for this y developing a realationship with thier father.
F's view on culture
the world culture and civlization are the same. he defined culure as the sum of acievments and insitutions which differntiate our lives form tjhose of our animal forbearers.
fured focuses on cultur as source of dississtaifactio and unhappiness for people becuase it restrice the ids searhc for pleaure.
fr souces of dissatisfaction
the invidivual must give up his or her power to a broader group, cilvization resticts freedom , eros and thantos are reprssed
fr stages of development: oral stage
streches from brith to 18 months of age, pleasure centered oral feeding sucking biting, understimulation couold result in a dependant personality, to much gratifacation resutls in overeating or smoking
fr stage psychosexual
anal stage
streches from approximaetly 18th montsh to 3 or 4 years. here pleasure is cetered ar ound the anus, too much gratification can result in somoen over orderlyy and focused on cleanlies to little slobbish person.
fr stages
most controversial stage becuse it iduces oepus and electra compelxes it occurs normal in ages 406 , pleasure from the genital ares,
latency period
