Temperament Concerns and Measures
Abstract: The documented importance of temperament in explaining individual variability in development and adjustment continues to spur interest in research even as contrasting theoretical perspectives are being debated. This review examines unresolved conceptual issues in the measurement of temperament. Despite many psychometric problems and conceptual shortcomings of measures derived from various perspectives that are available to assess temperament, the constructs themselves have important implications for the practice of psychology.
