However, many important relationships in personality do not take this form. A syndrome which is characteristic of a small number of people might involve items which are inter-correlated for that group but which are not correlated in the sample as a whole or in the general population which is being sampled. For example, Kagan et al. (1993: 26) draw attention to the following finding about infant temperament: Only a small proportion of infants – about 10% – show a combination of high motor activity and frequent crying at four months, high fear in the second year, and large cardiac accelerations to psychological stress.

It is worthwhile reflecting upon the assumptions underlying this approach. First, some aspect of a person’s psychological functioning can be isolated and quantified, and in particular it can be assigned a number that can be used to compare one individual with another. Second, these measures are relative, not absolute. An individual’s score on the measure only has meaning in the context of the scores that are obtained by other people. Third, a stable characteristic of the person is identified; the whole point of test scores is that predictions can be made about the individual’s future performance, their ability to cope with tasks they have yet to face.

This seems to be equivalent to aptitude–instruction interaction, a concept devised by researchers into the relationships between cognitive factors and learning. They have attempted to show that particular methods of instruction are more appropriate for some aptitudes than for others and have argued that a range of methods should be available to enable individual students to find the one best suited to them. Eysenck extends this idea to personality trait factors. He rejects the idea that students should be ‘streamed’ on the basis of their personality, but proposes that schools should offer a wide range of teaching strategies and should look carefully at individual students’ progress with different teaching programmes.
