Reviews

...this book should appeal to graduate students and psychologists interested in understanding the factors that contribute to the development of successful research practice, and it should be particularly useful to researchers interested in temperament as a self-regulative process. The research and theory presented in recent handbooks of research on self-regulation demonstrate the crucial role of temperament in self-regulation. Strelaus focus on the regulative aspect of temperament offers important insights for further research to advance our understanding of how temperament affects our actions, especially in stressful circumstances.'--Patricia T. Ashton PsycCritiques (01/01/0001)


Jan Strelau chronicles his courageous 50-year-long investigation of temperament . . . culminating in . . . the regulative theory of temperament. . . . Strelau's focus on the regulative aspect of temperament offers important insights for further research to advance our understanding of how temperament affects our actions, especially in stressful circumstances. Patricia T. Ashton in PsycCRITIQUES The importance of Strelau's research . . . makes this book indispensable. . . . Strelau has managed the rare achievement of bequeathing a theory of which not only he and his students, collaborators, and disciples can be proud, but indeed the entire field of differential psychology. K. V. Petrides in Personality and Individual Differences Prepublication praise In this exciting new book, Jan Strelau continues to carry on the tradition begun by Ivan Pavlov on temperament. Strelau's writing and the important research described in the book illuminate our understanding of temperament and show us how to apply this understanding to our work and life. Highly recommended to all in the areas of temperament, personality, and individual differences. Mary K. Rothbart, University of Oregon Jan Strelau's book is of considerable importance to all scientists who study the biological and behavioral bases of individual differences in temperament. His Regulative Theory of Temperament and the resulting FCB-TI for assessing temperament provide a rich and dynamic framework for the study of temperament. Donald H. Saklofske, University of Calgary
