2017 Personality 17: Biology and Traits: Agreeableness

2017-personality-17-biology-and-traits-agreeableness



In this lecture, I talk about the Big Five trait agreeableness, which is the dimension of the care system, in Jaak Panksepp’s terminology. It can be construed as cooperation vs competition, or compliance vs non-compliance, or tender-mindedness vs tough-mindedness. It is also an important determinant of political belief, being the trait most associated with the body of ideas that has come to be known as politically correct.

Agreeable people tend to view the political world as innocent infant vs reptilian predator. Perhaps this is good for you (although probably not) if you are placed in the innocent infant category, but it is not so good if you are deemed reptilian predator 🙂
