Pickering, Alan. 1999. Personality correlates of the dopaminergic facilitation of incentive motivation: Impulsive sensation seeking rather than extraversion? Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 22(03), pp. 534-535. ISSN 0140-525X [Article]

Abstract or Description

Depue & Collins associate dopaminergically mediated incentive motivational processes with extraversion. In this commentary I consider dopaminergic indices from neuroimaging investigations which correlate more closely with impulsive sensation seeking personality traits than with extraversion. Measures of relevant behavioural processes also appear to correlate with personality measures other than extraversion.
