Autonomic temperament.

Quote:
Temperament and Emotion Regulation: The Role of Autonomic Nervous System Reactivity


Abstract
The aim of the present study was to examine the moderating role of parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system functioning on the relationship between child temperament and emotion regulation. Sixty-two 4.5 year olds (31 females) were rated by their parents on temperamental surgency. Respiratory sinus arrhythmia (RSA) and pre-ejection period (PEP) were measured at baseline and in reaction to an interaction with an unfamiliar person and a cognitive test. The preschoolers’ ability to self-regulate emotion was assessed in response to a disappointment. Results revealed little or no PEP reactivity to the unfamiliar person to be related to poorer emotion regulation for children high in surgency, indicating that the lack of sympathetic activation may be a risk factor for behavioral maladjustment. Reciprocal sympathetic activation, or increases in sympathetic activity accompanied by decreases in parasympathetic activity, was associated with better regulation of emotion for all levels of temperamental surgency supporting previous work that reciprocal activation is an adaptive form of autonomic control.

Keywords: temperament, autonomic nervous system, parasympathetic reactivity, sympathetic reactivity, emotion regulation

Yes, because autonomic nervous system function is something humans are born with.

Temperament is a judgement made by those external to the person in question.

So by definition, no human being is born with a temperament of any kind.

The language in the study you provided is quite clear on this. Thank you for the example and information.

Again, temperament in an externally placed value judgement, not something humans are born with, have ever been born with, or ever will be born with.


Cheers,
Ian

Re: Autonomic temperament.

From what I've read temperament is largely inborn.

Re: Autonomic temperament.

Journal of developmental and behavioral pediatrics :
Behavioral Genetics and Child Temperament
Kimberly J. Saudino, Ph.D.

Abstract
Most temperament theories presume a biological basis to those behavioral tendencies thought to be temperamental in origin. Behavioral genetic methods can be used to test this assumption. Twin and adoption studies suggest that individual differences in infant and child temperament are genetically influenced. However, behavioral genetics has much more to offer to the study of temperament than simple heritability estimates. The present paper describes some recent findings from behavioral genetics research in temperament that go well beyond the basic nature-nurture question. These findings include the importance of nonshared environmental influences on temperament, genetic continuity and environmental change during development, links between temperament and behavior problems, and harnessing the power of molecular genetics to identify specific genes responsible for genetic influence on early temperament.

I wonder if there is a concept of a general homologous inborn temperament?

Re: Autonomic temperament.

I haven't read all the stuff from the link in the original post yet, but from what I've seen in my own family and having had 4 kids of my own, it's very clear to me that we are born with a temperament. No one could ever convince me otherwise, I've observed it firsthand.

Re: Autonomic temperament.

Here is some really interesting research partly focusing on the usefulness of Affective Neuroscience Personality Scales used to measure our primary emotional affective temperament.

Quote:
The Role of Nature and Nurture for Individual Differences in Primary Emotional Systems: Evidence from a Twin Study

Quote:
Abstract The present study investigated for the first time the relative importance of genetics and environment on individual differences in primary emotionality as measured with the Affective Neuroscience Personality Scales (ANPS) by means of a twin-sibling study design. In N = 795 participants (n = 303 monozygotic twins, n = 172 dizygotic twins and n = 267 non-twin full siblings), moderate to strong influences of genetics on individual differences in these emotional systems are observed. Lowest heritability estimates are presented for the ANGER system (31%) and highest for the PLAY system (69%). Further, multivariate genetic modeling was applied to the data showing that associations among the six ANPS scales were influences by both, a genetic as well as an environmental overlap between them. In sum, the study underlines the usefulness of the ANPS for biologically oriented personality psychology research.
