Corr I 331
Five-Factor Model/Neurobiology: Identifying serotonin and dopamine as likely biological substrates for the meta-traits begins to develop a psychobiological model of the personality hierarchy based on the Big Five. However, the correlations among the Big Five that reveal the meta-traits are not very strong, and each Big Five trait describes a clearly distinct domain of personality. Biological Biological substrates must exist that are unique to each trait, in addition to the shared substrates that produce the meta-traits.
