Example text

In addition, behaviors that prove adaptive at one time fail to do so at another. As the focus of this chapter is on personality, both normal and abnormal, we should ask at the outset, how do we conceive the subject of personality? The word personality derives from the Greek term persona and was chosen to represent the theatrical mask used by dramatic players. This meaning has changed. As a mask assumed by an actor it suggested a pretense of appearance, that is, the possession of traits other than those which actually characterized the individual behind the mask.

As addressed in earlier books and articles of ours, we judge that principles of an evolutionary character underlie all of them, that is, laws and processes that all our man-made distinct sciences share in common. Though “discovered” initially in the biological sciences, evolution reflects a set of natural laws applicable to both the physical and the psychological sciences. To us, these common rudiments and universal operations of nature also undergird our science’s study of the problems of persons, as well as the logic we should follow, when needed, to select the focus and modes for their treatment.

Reference to the descriptive trait domains of all but one personality may be found in Millon and Davis (1996). The prototypal domain model illustrates that categorical (qualitative distinction) and dimensional (quantitative distinction) approaches need not be framed in opposition, no less be considered mutually exclusive. Assessments can be formulated, first, to recognize qualitative (categorical) distinctions in what prototypal features best characterize a person, permitting the multiple listing of several such features, and second, to differentiate these features quantitatively (dimensionally) so as to represent their relative degrees of clinical prominence or pervasiveness.
