Richard A. Depue on Extraversion - Dictionary of Arguments

Corr I 328
Extraversion/Depue/Collins: Depue and Collins(1) focused primarily on what they called ‘Agentic Extraversion’, encompassing assertiveness, dominance and ambition, and distinguished this from ‘Affiliative Extraversion’, which is related to sociability and affiliative social bonding. ‘Extraversion’ was eventually dropped from the label for the latter trait, and Depue and Morrone-Strupinsky (2005)(2) proposed a theory of Affiliation, linking it to the brain systems controlling sensitivity to affiliative bonding and consummatory reward, focusing particularly on the endogenous opioids and sociosexual peptides like oxytocin. >Neuroticism/Depue
