Temperamental Concepts and Personality Theory: The Perspective of Cognitive-Experiential Self-Theory
Hedwig Teglasi, Seymour Epstein
Abstract: This review illustrates the applicability of temperamental constructs to personality theory by mapping key temperament constructs onto Cognitive-Experiential Self-Theory(CEST). Linkages between temperament and CEST are clarified by examining the role of temperament in shaping day to day experiences; the representation of experiences in memory structures (schemas about self, others, the world) that influence the construal of subsequent events; and the implications for education and socialization that stem from the synthesis of temperament constructs and personality theory.
