Temperament as a Regulator of Behavior: After Fifty Years of Research

Overview

Nature or nurture? Are individuals born as an empty slate and shaped by their environment or are we already programmed to react in certain ways? Strelau (emeritus, psychology, Warsaw University; professor at the Warsaw School of Social Psychology since 1998) has spent more than fifty years studying this age-old question. He bases some of his conclusions on the pioneering work of the Russian physiologist Ivan Pavlov but carries them into the 21st century by including genetic studies. Strelau intends this book to provide a framework for others studying the field. He spends several chapters on methodology and also gives the results of his studies, primarily on how different people react in stressful situations.

Reviews

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
