  4. d individual differences that emerge early in life, are heritable, and involve behaviors that are linked with emotion (activity level, emotion states, soothability, and orientation) - four different ones:

  3. No Correlationwhen the correlation is -1.0


  4. Personalityconsistency of the measure
    1. consistency between items (internal consistency)
