    Reinforcement sensitivity theory Author: Dr Simon Moss Overview of the theory. Reinforcement sensitivity theory, formulated by Gray (), and then refined over a series of articles (e.g., Gray, , , ), characterizes three systems that underpin individual differences in personality and psychopathology.   Jeffrey Gray has proposed an influential alternative biological theory of personalit (Gray, , ), called reinforcement sensitivity theory. Based on brain function research with animals, Gray has constructed a model of human personality based on .

    Contemporary Developments in Trait Theory: Reinforcement Sensitivity Theory The Case of Jim—Factor-Analytic Trait-Based Assessment The Person-Situation Controversy Critical Evaluation Major Concepts Review 9 Biological Foundations of Personality Questions to be Addressed in this Chapter Temperament Reinforcement sensitivity theory proposes three brain-behavioral systems that underlie individual differences in sensitivity to reward, punishment, and motivation. While not originally defined as a theory of personality, the RST has been used to study and predict anxiety, impulsivity, and extraversion. The theory evolved from Gray's biopsychological theory of personality to incorporate findings from a .

    reinforcement sensitivity theory, research, applications and future; approach–avoidance process theory of personality - by Jeffrey Alan Gray, known as reinforcement sensitivity theory (RST); psychology, study of affect, behavior, cognition and desire - personality psychology of long-term pattern of affect, behavior, cognition and desire;. Reinforcement sensitivity theory is Gray's biological theory of personality. Based on recent brain function research with animals, Gray constructed a model of human personality based on two hypothesized biological systems in the brain: the Behavioral Activation System (which is responsive to incentives, such as cues for reward, and regulates approach behavior) and hte Behavioral Inhibition.

This book attempts to unite this ever-growing field with the premier neurobiological theory of personality, otherwise known as reinforcement sensitivity theory (RST). Anthony Walsh places the highly variable number of biosocial approaches under a single theoretical umbrella, whilst providing a unique integrative framework.

The reinforcement sensitivity theory (RST) is a major neuropsychological account of emotion, motivation, and learning (Corr ). It proposes three principal systems: one, concerned with positive incentive, the behavioral approach system (BAS), and two defensive systems, one concerned with pure avoidance/escape, the fight-flight-freeze system (FFFS, related to fear), and second related to goal.

This revision of RST raises new problems for personality. For example, it raises the question of which traits now correspond to the FFFS, BAS and BIS (the implications of the new theory for personality is discussed elsewhere; see Ref.

The Reinforcement Sensitivity Theory (RST) of personality is a theoretical account of the neural and psychological processes underlying the major dimensions of personality. Much of the theoretical and empirical basis of RST owes its existence to the outstanding work of Professor Jeffrey Gray, over a period of the last forty years.

'The Reinforcement Sensitivity Theory of Personality is rooted in contemporary neurophysiology of learning and emotion. This text presents an outstanding exposition of the development, data, and direction of RST as well as an excellent critical analysis of.

Personality theory is concerned with describing and explaining the observed complexity of individual differences in the patterning of affect, behavior, cognition and desires over time and space. At the descriptive level, there is moderately strong consensus that three to six broad domains can be used to organize how people describe themselves and others.

The fourth attempt is the Reinforcement Sensitivity Theory of Personality Questionnaire (RST-PQ; Corr & Cooper, ). This was developed on the basis of qualitative responses to defensive and approach scenarios, modeled on typical rodent ethoexperimental situations (Blanchard, Hynd, Minke, Minemotom, & Blanchard, ; see Fig.
