The relationship between intelligence and Pavlovian temperament traits: The role of the level of intelligence

Magdalena Kaczmarek , Jan Strelau , Agnieszka Miklewska


From the very beginning of scientific research in psychology, the question about the relationship between intelligence and personality has been attracting attention. Chamorro-Premuzic and Furnham (2006) mentioned seven reasons that justify the interest of both these aspects of human characteristics at the same time. Both intelligence and personality traits are latent psychological constructs, which are manifested in individual differences in human behavior that can be systematically measured and observed. Individual differences in intelligence as well as in personality traits are quite stable along a life span, and to a given extent genetically determined; thus, in regard to both of them, the predictive role in educational and occupational setting is revealed. Moreover, both aspects – intelligence and personality – play a central role in the history of individual differences studies. As mentioned in our previous publications (Miklewska, Kaczmarek, & Strelau, 2006; Miklewska, Strelau, & Kaczmarek, 2004), many personality researchers, such as Thurstone, Guilford, Eysenck, and Cattell, showed interest in both intelligence and personality.
