Measuring[ edit ] Personality can be determined through a variety of tests. However, dimensions of personality and scales of personality tests vary and often are poorly defined.
Examples of such tests are the: Five-factor model[ edit ] Personality is often broken into statistically-identified factors called the Big Fivewhich are openness to experienceconscientiousnessextraversionagreeablenessand neuroticism or emotional stability.
These components are generally stable over time, and about half of the variance appears to be attributable to a person's genetics rather than the effects of one's environment. The implications of these findings can help identify children that are more likely to experience episodes of depression and develop types of treatment that such children are likely to respond to.
In both children and adults, research shows that genetics, as opposed to environmental factors, exert a greater influence on happiness levels. Personality is not stable over the course of a lifetime, but it changes much more quickly during childhood, so personality constructs in children are referred to as temperament.
Temperament is regarded as the precursor to personality. This model measures levels of emotionality, activity, sociability, and shyness in children. The personality theorists consider temperament EAS model similar to the Big Five model in adults; however, this might be due to a conflation of concepts of personality and temperament as described above.
Findings show that high degrees of sociability and low degrees of shyness are equivalent to adult extraversion, and correlate with higher levels of life satisfaction in children.
Another interesting finding has been the link found between acting extraverted and positive affect. Extraverted behaviors include acting talkative, assertive, adventurous, and outgoing. For the purposes of this study, positive affect is defined as experiences of happy and enjoyable emotions.
In other words, the study focused on the benefits and drawbacks of introverts people who are shy, socially inhibited and non-aggressive acting extraverted, and of extraverts acting introverted.
After acting extraverted, introverts' experience of positive affect increased  whereas extraverts seemed to experience lower levels of positive affect and suffered from the phenomenon of ego depletion.
Ego depletionor cognitive fatigue, is the use of one's energy to overtly act in a way that is contrary to one's inner disposition.
When people act in a contrary fashion, they divert most, if not all, cognitive energy toward regulating this foreign style of behavior and attitudes. Because all available energy is being used to maintain this contrary behavior, the result is an inability to use any energy to make important or difficult decisions, plan for the future, control or regulate emotions, or perform effectively on other cognitive tasks.
The two types of explanations attempt to account for this difference are instrumental theories and temperamental theories. The temperamental theory suggests that extraverts have a disposition that generally leads them to experience a higher degree of positive affect.
In their study of extraversion, Lucas and Baird  found no statistically significant support for the instrumental theory but did, however, find that extraverts generally experience a higher level of positive affect.
Research has been done to uncover some of the mediators that are responsible for the correlation between extraversion and happiness.This reference list was compiled by Robert Hare for personal use.

Personality is defined as the characteristic set of behaviors, cognitions, and emotional patterns that evolve from biological and environmental factors.
While there is no generally agreed upon definition of personality, most theories focus on motivation and psychological interactions with one's environment. Trait-based personality theories, such as those defined by Raymond Cattell define.
