Temperamental Factors in Human Development.
Kagan, Jerome; Snidman, Nancy
American Psychologist, v46 n8 p856-62 Aug 1991
The development of two temperamental characteristics--the tendency to approach (uninhibited) and the tendency to avoid (inhibited) unfamiliar events--may be partially controlled by genetic predisposition. Discusses the results of a study indicating that the level of motor responses and crying in response to unfamiliar stimuli in four month olds predicts inhibited or uninhibited behavior patterns at age two.
