Auke Tellegen on Extraversion - Dictionary of Arguments

Corr I 60
Extraversion/emotion/five-factor model/personality psychology/Tellegen: Tellegen (1985)(1) (…) proposed to rename extraversion ‘positive emotionality’ because of its conceptual and empirical relations to the propensity to experience positive affect (measured, for example, with the Positive Affect sub-scale of the PANAS (Positive and Negative Affect Schedule)), which he considered to be the core of extraversion. However, although positive emotionality may be its core, extraversion also subsumes other dispositions, in particular sociability (the tendency to be outgoing and sociable versus withdrawn and reserved) (see Costa and McCrae 1992(2); John and Srivastava 1999(3)). Empirically, too, the correlations between extraversion and positive emotionality are not strong enough to warrant the identification of these dispositions (Lucas and Fujita 2000)(4). >Neuroticism
