  2. A physiological profile approach to animal temperament: How to

    Early animal research included basic observations of behavioural variation among individuals [18,19]. In the late 1990s, it was hypothesized that the 'Big-Five model' of human personality could be used to characterize individual differences in animal behaviour [2,20], and most recently, Réale et al.

  3. Animal Personality and Conservation: Basics for Inspiring New Research

    Simple Summary. The study of animal personality is important to conserve animals because it can help in selecting the most appropriate individuals to be released into the wild.

  5. Animal behavior and animal personality from a non-human perspective

    Research in artificial intelligence has influenced many fields, and the study of animals is no exception. One of the biggest challenges to this field is the ability to decipher animal behavior, regardless of species, in a genuinely unsupervised manner from end to end; that is, to use machines to transcribe movements and postures into our own words.

  8. Personality in animals: What can we learn from a species‑comparative

    Abstract. This chapter examines how the study of personality in nonhuman animals contributes to our understanding of personality in general and of human personality in particular. For one, animal research has helped elucidate the evolutionary bases of personality variation and structure by the method of exclusion. In other words, this research ...

  9. Personality in Animals

    The animal personality literature suggests that factors analogous to all of the human five factors are found in other species ... (Mason and Latham 2004), from pets, to zoo and aquarium animals, to research subjects. We therefore have a responsibility to provide these animals with the best possible level of care.

  10. Demystifying animal 'personality' (or not): why individual variation

    Recent evidence suggests that neural plasticity may underlie the physiological (endocrine) and molecular/genetic basis for plasticity versus rigidity in behavioural responses, especially those related to stress (reviewed in Sørensen et al., 2013). ... Animal personality research is a controversial and polarizing topic among biologists, yet the ...

  11. Frontiers

    Yet, the overwhelming majority of animal personality studies focuses on a small set of traits: boldness, exploration tendency, aggressiveness, activity, and sociability [reviews Mather and Logue, 2013 (invertebrates); Conrad et al., 2011; Mittelbach et al., 2014 (fish); van Oers and Naguib, 2013 (birds)], with the exception of studies applying a...

  12. Terminology use in animal personality research: a self-report

    Historically, animal personality research has been broadly divided into researchers that apply a more 'behavioural ecologist'-oriented framework (i.e. among-individual variation in a behavioural trait, [4,6,25,31,32,53]) and researchers that adopt a more 'personality psychologist'-oriented approach (i.e. characterization of the ...

  13. Personality beyond taxonomy

    Research on animal personality has relied on several sources of measures to infer personality 39: explicit ratings of personality traits provided by observers familiar with the animal (trait ...

  14. From mice to men: What can we learn about personality from animal research?

    A review of the diverse animal-personality literature suggests that (a) most research uses trait constructs, focuses on variation within (vs. across) species, and uses either behavioral codings or trait ratings; (b) ratings are generally reliable and show some validity (7 parameters that could influence reliability and 4 challenges to validation...

  15. Sociability as a personality trait in animals: methods, causes and

    For example, recent research suggests that individuals' microbiota, influenced by the environment, could affect social behaviour in a wide range of taxa (Sherwin et al., 2019). Higher levels of sociability can then in turn increase transmission of microbiota, creating a feedback loop. ... Across research in animal personality variation, social ...

  16. A systematic review of animal personality in conservation science

    Although animal personality research may have applied uses, this suggestion has yet to be evaluated by assessing empirical studies examining animal personality and conservation. ... This suggests that personality's role in conservation is more complicated than the traditional unidirectional relationship suggestions made by reviewers, such as ...

  17. Do Animals Have Personality?

    Animal personality refers to consistency in the types of behavior that individuals exhibit. Behavioral biologists, psychologists, endocrinologists, and evolutionary and developmental biologists are now studying animal personality.

  20. Bridging human and animal research: A comparative ...

    But human personality research suggests that ratings are the superior method for assessing personality because ratings are generally more reliable and more practical. Even in a laboratory setting, human social behavior is very difficult to code reliably, and the coding process is labor intensive (Gosling et al., 1998, Gosling et al., 2003a).
