Psychological classifications — EPT

The problem of finding the essencial grounds for the classification psychological types, that is the grounds determing a more broad spectrum of derivative characteristics has always been crucial for the differential psychology. Historical background The logic of development of classification hypotheses in psychology The entire history of human studies from the system-classification position reveals itself as arena of struggle of two opposite methodological directions, the goals of which were: 1) to "catch" the central organizing link, some kind of the motor of all design, and to distribute people by the qualitative specificity of these central links; 2) to decompose the psychic to its components in order to understand the work of parts and to create a classification on the basis of differences in the structure and quality of parts.

Collective self-esteem consequences of outgroup derogation when a valued social identity is on trial - Branscombe - 1994 - European Journal of Social Psychology. A structural equation model tested the role of degree of identification with a group (Americans) and level of collective self-esteem as determinants of outgroup derogation under identity-threatening and non-threatening conditions.

Revision due to experiences of the last decades and immense progress in science. Release 2013. – weihler

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is the handbook used by health care professionals in the United States and much of the world as the authoritative guide to the diagnosis of mental disorders.

DSM V Development

DSM contains descriptions, symptoms, and other criteria for diagnosing mental disorders. It provides a common language for clinicians to communicate about their patients and establishes consistent and reliable diagnoses that can be used in the research of mental disorders. It also provides a common language for researchers to study the criteria for potential future revisions and to aid in the development of medications and other interventions. Psychiatry and Heart Disease. The Mind, Brain and Heart.

Psychiatry and Heart Disease is a pioneering book connecting the heart and brainl. The interplay between psychiatric problems, particularly depression, and cardiovascular disease, with each increasing susceptibility to the other, has been established in recent years. This unique book features chapters co-authored by psychiatrists and cardiovascular specialists , combining their expertise to provide guidance on the best way to manage such patients, considering the patient as a whole, not the individual conditions. The book starts with the association between cardiovascular risk factors, heart diseases, and psychological distress. – weihler

Volume 93, Issue 3, September 2009, Pages 199–211 Impulsivity and Frontal Lobes: Roles in Psychopathology and Addiction Edited By Theodora Duka and Fulton Crews Abstract Adaptive motivated behaviors are at the core of a successful life.

Concept to provide an understanding of the patterns of motivated behavior. It comprises three nodes that each presents a functional dominance over approach (striatum), avoidance (amygdala) and behavioral regulation (prefrontal cortex). Each of these nodes participates in the coding of the behavioral responses to positive and negative stimuli, and their regulation. The detection node includes the fusiform face area. These regions are involved in basic perceptual processes on social stimuli. The affective node includes the amygdala, hypothalamus, nucleus accumbens, and bed nucleus of the stria terminalis. It attaches an affective value to social stimuli. The cognitive-regulation node of PFC is involved in inhibitory processes and in understanding self- and other-perspective in social interactions. – weihler
A. Signals from thalamo-cortical and/or thalamic projections reach the amygdala and striatum B. Amygdala processing and sending to brainstem for immediate action if necessary and to prefrontal cortex for further evaluation. Striatum also processes the information, and sends back to prefrontal cortex (thalamic interrupted, indirect projections) C. Prefrontal cortex sends back to the amygdala and striatum. D. Both striatum and amygdala translate modulated signal into motivation to respond to stimulus. – weihler
E. The striatal output is relatively more active in adolescents than in adults. F. Cortical projections are weaker in adolescents than in adults. G. The differential weight of the projections from the amygdala and striatum to effector systems is greater in adolescents than in adults, suggesting stronger motivation to approach than to avoid in adolescents than in adults in a positive context. – weihler

Number of neuroanatomical and neurobiological alterations. Dopaminergic and serotonergic system change. Receptor loss and severe structural changes in PFC and striatum. Progressive decline in several cognitive functions, such as episodic memory, working memory, and processing speed. Deficits in tasks requiring adaptation to external feedback of right or wrong, or task-switching. Hypothesis: Loss of behavioral flexibility is caused by structural and functional alterations of the reward system leading to impairments in reward processing, learning stimulus reinforcement associations, and reward-based decision-making. VST shows greater response to reward cues, after stimulus-reward-association had been learned. Greater activation of VST during reward processing in young relative to older adults.

Men And Women See Things Differently. Neurobiological personality traits. Different people are good at different things.

There are a small number of underlying personality traits. All the other myriad factors and characteristics are just reflections of those basic ones. These reflect basic neurobiological processes. It turns out that our strengths are indeed related to our personality – it looks like who we are affects what we enjoy doing and what we are good at. If you factor analyse all the strengths (24 in the VIA classification) and compare them to the Big 5, you find that they form clusters. So for each of the Big 5 there is a group of strengths that are related to it. – weihler

Part of being productive and fulfilled is about finding the kinds of work and jobs that you are good at or enjoy doing.

Neurobiological personality traits

Finding a best fit between an individuals abilities and a particular job process or skill is important but under-appreciated. Last month we focused on the idea of employing strengths in order to get more from your working day and feel invigorated at the same time. Strengths might be considered as skills or abilities that an individual has developed over their life. Advantages of high- and low-delayers. Remember those poor little kids who just couldn't wait for the Psych professor to come back into the room before they ate the marshmallow?

Advantages of high- and low-delayers

You know, the ones with little to no self-control, who would go on to do more poorly in school, to be less "socially competent" adolescents and to be more prone to being overweight, divorce and substance abuse as young adults? Well, they're back, and so are their goody-two-shoes peers who got an extra treat because they could seemingly go for hours without so much as nibbling on that marshmallow after the investigator left the room.

Those kids are all in their mid-40s now, and you know what? They haven't changed a bit. Liberal and Conservative Anterior Cingulate Cortices. Reading an article in the LA Times today, I learned something exciting: political differences in thought happen in the brain.

Previous psychological studies have found that conservatives tend to be more structured and persistent in their judgments whereas liberals are more open to new experiences. The latest study found those traits are not confined to political situations but also influence everyday decisions. The results show "there are two cognitive styles -- a liberal style and a conservative style". Each participant was wired to an electroencephalograph that recorded activity in the anterior cingulate cortex, the part of the brain that detects conflicts between a habitual tendency (pressing a key) and a more appropriate response (not pressing the key). Liberals had more brain activity and made fewer mistakes than conservatives when they saw a W. They were equally accurate in recognizing M. Liberals were 4.9 times as likely as conservatives to show activity in the brain circuits that deal with conflicts, and 2.2 times as likely to score in the top half of the distribution for accuracy. – weihler

At least that’s what a new study published in Nature Neuroscience(1) purports to show, though I hear that the next issue of the journal will contain critical responses from Descartes, Malenbranche, and Eccles. Seriously though, the paper by Amodio et al. takes as its launching point the large body of evidence that political conservatives and liberals differ on personality dimensions related to openness to experience, tolerance of uncertainty, and cognitive complexity. It stands to reason that such differences in cognitive style manifest themselves in the brain (pace Descartes), but it doesn’t really suggest where in the brain.
