Chapter 5: Five Basic Traits- In the Brain and in Behaviour
E: Extraversion
Social Behaviour and Cognitive Performance
Human by nature, are social beings
Individual differences regarding sociality should prove very important to us
One trait domain that captures many of these words and characterization is extraversion (E)
Carl Jung- extraverts directs psychological energy outward to social world, whereas introverts direct it
inward toward private thought and fantasy
Eysenck- extravert is outgoing, sociable, enthusiastic, somewhat impulsive and needless
oIntrovert, more quiet and with withdrawn, but more contemplative, deliberate and less likely to
take bad risks
Extraverts and introverts show different cognitive strengths and weaknesses with respect to certain tasks
and under certain conditions
Brebner and Cooper- extravertsgeared to respond”, introvertsgeared to inspect
Feeling Good
E positivity associated with reports of feeling good about ones life
oReport greater levels of positive affect in everyday life than do introverts
Extraverts may be less responsive to punishment than introverts
oIntroverts dwell on negative and punitive features of certain social situations
Extraverts better able to regulate their moods than introverts
oMood regulation: ability to maintain positive ratio of good to bad feelings in life
oGood way to regulate emotional states in savouring positive experience
N: Neuroticism
The Many Ways to Feel Bad
Measures of chronic anxiety, depression, excessive emotionality, nervousness, moodiness, hostility,
vulnerability, self-consciousness, hypochrondriasis
Tendency to be distressed and upset in many realms of their lives
oWorried, nervous, insecure
Individual differences in neuroticism linked to differences in experience of negative emotional states
oPeople high in neuroticism are lonelier and less satisfied with interpersonal relationships in their
lives
N strongly associated with so many bad things
oBolger and Schilling: high N adults tended to report greater number of daily stressors than low N
adults
oReactivity: negative emotional reactions to stressful events significantly stronger
oUnrelated to stress: 60% of relationship between neuroticism and distress had nothing to do
Suis and martin- neurotic cascade: 5 different processes reinforce each other in neuroticism to cause
build up and strong release of negative emotion in daily life
oCumulative effect life a cascade
oFactors:
Hyperacitivity: people high in N more sensitive to signals of punishment and negative
effect in their environment
Differential exposure: experience negative events more frequently because more sensitive
to negative stimuli to begin with
Differential appraisal: interpret many kinds of events, even those that are not objectivity
negative in more negative terms
Negative emotions experience a result of their special sensitivity, differential exposure
and especially negative modes of interpretation create mood spillover
