The ethology of inter individual differences the boundary between personality psychology and ethology


Acta Biotheoretica 28(2): 123-134
The ethology of inter individual differences the boundary between personality psychology and ethology
Psychologists have shown a growing interest in ethological methods of data collection. At the same time, ethologists are showing a growing interest in the methods of data processing as developed in human personality psychology. These methods of data processing appear to be most useful to ethological research when investigating differences between individuals. Using factor analysis of aggressive behavior as an example, it is argued that an ethological approach which focusses on individual differences may add substantial information to the models derived from a (classical) ethological approach which only concerns general pictures of species. The advantages of the proposed research procedures are discussed, especially in relation to behavioral genetic and ontogenetic research.
