Personality Examined Through Different Lenses Name: Institute: The Journal has established that biological factors are strong predictor of human personality which influence their personal development capacity , in addition , some biological factors of early age has been viewed as strong indicator and determinant factor of education at later age. Despite the limitation of the study, estimated result shows that biological traits correlate to personal development that influences education and success.This study demonstrate that personality traits and illogical factors measures by birth weight affect personal development which explain variation in labor market, success and schooling in different population however, the study also suggest that the role of biological trait can play different role in different population (Outtake and Lee, n. D. ). Lifespan psychology relates human development and aging with eve that development is continuous life on process influenced by biological, cultural and environmental factors.
These influences in context of development are arranged in multiple levels across three class of influence . . Non normative, age graded and history graded. These three non independent influences have net effect of producing differences in people. Where three meta principle that guide culture, biological factors in relation to development and aging are recognized as ; biological plasticity increase with age ,need for culture as age increases and efficacy of culture decreasing with age.
However an insight is needed to explain if development and aging entities should be treated differently or should be viewed within the same perspectives (Ballets and Smith, 2004).Empathy across the lifespan study done previously examined empathy in association to other measures , where both longitudinal and cross section analysis produce different result, where longitudinal analysis shows non – related decrease in empathy while cross section analysis result shows that younger adults score high in empathy compared to older adult. From the study , both longitudinal and cross section not support age – related decline in longitudinal analysis and that empathy is related to quality of interaction in social setting.People with high depression demonstrated remarkable decline in empathy over a period of 12 years while people with high self acceptance ,low autonomy and positive affect low depression showed remarkable empathy increase over 12 years.
Among the adult empathy remain fairly constant across life span of adults and this imply that empathy foundation is created in early age. However the question arises whether there is different component of empathy that shows different projection of development over lifespan of adults (Grunt et al, 2008)
