Sample text

It, too, is a topic that Eysenck pioneered. We are referring to the association between personality and the response to psychoactive or, as they are sometimes called, psychotropic drugs, viz. substances that have their primary effect on the central nervous system. As Eysenck was quick to point out, as long as we can assume that such drugs act on the same biological systems as those underlying personality, then individuals should differ in their reactions to them. In a broad sense this assumption is, of course, true.

So far, we have used these terms interchangeably, and rather loosely. Early accounts of personality – notably the classic theory – have certainly come down to us as theories of temperament. But, in current parlance ‘temperament’ has a rather old-fashioned ring and, with a few exceptions, most modern personality psychologists have dropped the word from their vocabularies. Even Eysenck, who explicitly traced his own ideas to the classic typology, preferred to see his own theory as being about personality.

To understand this, it will be helpful to examine a dimensional view of disorder that goes beyond Eysenck’s rather simple model. 3 shows a model which takes account of both the personality and the illness aspect in disorder, as outlined in the previous section. The example we have chosen is anxiety but it will act as a useful template for understanding certain features of all of the disorders that we shall be discussing. The diagram is self-explanatory, but several points should be mentioned. We first need to remind the reader of a crucial feature of the model.
