Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Clark & Watson, 1999) opines three basic temperaments (positive or 1786 negative emotionality, and constraint ); Goldsmith ea (1987) listed four ways in which infants express temperament, i. Constraint (possibly subserved by serotonin) refers to the tendency to take the longterm view rather than simply reacting to emotions. According to the epigenesis approach, development occurs in successive, clearly defined stages. Each stage follows the previous one, and each must be negotiated successfully in order for development to proceed smoothly. Should a stage not be resolved, all subsequent stages reflect that failure in the guise of physical, cognitive, emotional or social maladjustment. In crisis points theory, on the other hand, each stage is characterised by a crisis point that must be successfully negotiated. Many factors interact in a complex way to produce our eventual personality: genes, experiences, culture, parents, other people, the environment, etc. Illness, disease or dysfunction does not arise in vacuo but in a person with a personality. Other factors are also important in modifying the clinical appearance of illness, e. The latter are prescribed by licensed professionals, the self, 1789 lay acquaintances, or illicitly. Also, in the context of environmental adversity, genetics become more important in the causation of ‘externalising disorders’ such as antisocial behaviour and substance use. The diagnosis is relatively unstable over time and many clinicians are either extremely reluctant to make it or view it as a working diagnosis. Learning problems and psychological difficulties are common in any population of epileptics. Hippocrates and temperament Temperament Body humour Characteristic Melancholic Black bile Pessimistic Sanguine Blood Over-optimistic Choleric Yellow bile Irritable Phlegmatic Phlegm Apathetic 1790 Trait theory is basically an attempt at taxonomy. Introversion-extraversion , body build types, and so on, are all based on the assumption that we, as people, occupy some point along some line(s) which are 1791 called trait(s). In 1936 Kretschmer described three personality types: pyknic, athletic and leptosomatic. In 1942 he rated personality on three dimensions: viscerotonia - relaxed, enjoys comfort; somatotonia - assertive, energetic; and cerebrotonia - very controlled, not inclined to overt action, expresses himself symbolically. These are all attempts at classifying people according to somatotype (body-build), a practice that had some grain of truth in extreme cases. Genes determine differences in reaction between individuals to the same environmental situation. Family environment (read ‘genetic’) is more important than wider (environmental) influences (e. There are three main traits (vide supra): E, extraversion – (ambiversion) – introversion; N, neuroticism – stability; and P, psychoticism – ego control. He is highly critical of modern psychiatric taxonomies, seeing that as politically compromised committee resolutions, and recommends the dimensional over the categorical approach to 1793 diagnosis. Cramer (1994) interprets Eysenck’s ‘neuroticism’ as reflecting emotional instability and his ‘psychoticism’ as meaning a lack of caring. Robert Cloninger (Cloninger, 1987, 2002) Dimensions preferable to categories (supported by Morey ea, 2007) Temperament is the emotional (limbic, hypothalamic) and character is the higher cognitive (mental self- government; thalamocortical, frontal cortex) aspects of personality respectively Four temperamental dimensions: harm avoidance (anxious v daring), novelty seeking (exploring/impulsive/irritable/aggressive v frugal/stoical), reward dependence (social sensitivity attachment v insensitive/aloof), and persistence (industrious/determined v underachiever) Character traits include self-directedness (purposeful/resourceful v aimless/helpless), cooperativeness (helpful/principled v hostile/opportunistic), and self-transcendence (inventive/insightful v unimaginative/undiscerning) People with personality disorders have immature characters and show low self-directedness and low- cooperativeness Cools and Ellenbroek (2002) detect some correspondence between Cloninger’s temperaments and the ancient Greek humors as well as with basic emotions (anger, fear, love, tenacity). It is possible that these insights owe more to the similar meanings of words from different languages than to any revelations about what makes people tick. Likewise, Schneider (1950) decried categorisation because he felt that personality, which he believed was genetically endowed, was too rich and complex to be described so narrowly. Community studies tend to support a dimensional approach, personality disorder being on a continuum with ‘normal’ personality. They point out the deficiencies of categories: overlap, heterogeneity within categories, vague boundaries with ‘normals’, and the fact that the ‘not otherwise specified’ category is the most heavily populated! Approaches centred on variables measure how they describe an individual patient whereas those centred on the patient look for closeness of (dimensional) match between a prototype and the patient. Trait-based dimensional approaches include many continuous variables on which all of us vary. Tyrer’s (2007) personality diathesis model suggests that personality disorder carries a vulnerability to an Axis I disorder that may or may not be manifest.
