Often wondered about wether there are certain 'generic' structures that form in peoples neural nets too that help shape an inclination to lean a certain direction.

In addition, as we get older, neuroticism goes down – we become better at handling emotions. At the same time, conscientiousness and agreeableness go up – we become progressively more responsible and less antagonistic.

Serious over-generalization. whistle

Test*:
1. Having read the linked article,
"Naughty or Nice? Personality Traits Linked to Differences in Brain Structure",
explain your understanding of how "increased thickness as well as reduced area and folding in some regions of the cortex such as the prefrontal-temporal cortices" produce the functional outcome of "high levels of neuroticism".

2. Discuss the choice of title for the article, in terms of it's relevance to the content of the article.
What category of magazines is this title referencing?
Why do you think the editor took this approach?


* There is always a test.

Brain density is typically seen as a "good" thing.*
*seriously inefficient rule of thumb

(Also, your link is down.)

I would be incredibly surprised if what you term "neural nets" were anything but idiosyncratic, but I get surprised sometimes! I'm surprised to see this "personality trait" related to physiology at all -- that's pretty interesting. If you find an alternate link I'd like to see it!

This link currently working here.

I always felt that being a shallow person was better.

All those thinkers ARE so neurotic.

The link is working now, and was working before I posted upthread. YMMV.

No I conceed that every persons neural net would be unique but was just wondering if certain 'templates' would be seen to be common I suppose I mean a bit like lego bricks the brick isn't unique but the final structure is.

And if that happens do certain 'bricks' predispose you to certain behaviour or beliefs, I do believe other factors like nature and environment play a part also.

The link still works for me but here is a google cache for it http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:gSsUqSWWzjUJ:http://neurosciencenews.com/personality-brain-structure-6005/%2Bhttp://neurosciencenews.com/personality-brain-structure-6005...

may be that will work for you. The full report is published in the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience htps://academic.oup.com/scan but I don't know if it is pay walled or not.

Thanks for the links all.

That's interesting! I imagine they're following up w/ something longitudinal -- well, hopefully -- that looks at both prediction in terms of risk factors, as well as preventative treatments/interventions (e.g., mindfulness et al. for neuroticism, etc.)

You neurotic authoritarian control freaks can't even let a carefree extrovert chase butterflies in the sun-shine. Pooey to you I say.
