The Effects of Catch-Trials on Speed and Accuracy Among Introverts and Extraverts in a Simple RT Task
Brebner, John; Flavel, Rosemary
British Journal of Psychology, 69 pt1, 9-15, Feb 78
Three predictions from the model of extraversion put forward by Brebner & Cooper (1974) were tested in a simple reaction time task. What emerges is a more coherent picture of the extravert showing him to be prone to two types of S-inhibition, the one generated by feedback and when response demands are low, and dependent upon R-excitation to maintain his responsiveness.
