Abstract [en]

Examined whether inhibition should be considered a trait dimension, or whether those who manifest extreme inhibition constitute a discrete personality type. Also examined was whether there are sex differences in stability of inhibition. These questions were addressed using mothers' ratings over 16 yrs and psychologists' ratings over 6 yrs of a longitudinal sample. Ss were 212 children (122 boys and 90 girls). From the mean of mothers' 18- and 24-mo ratings and the mean of psychologists' 18- and 24-mo ratings, later ratings through 16 yrs were predicted. Analyses were performed for children constituting the extreme 10-15% from each end of the distribution and then for children not rated as extreme. Ratings were more stable for children in the extreme groups than for those in the nonextreme groups through 6 yrs; however, only for the inhibited girls did early inhibition predict inhibition into adolescence.
