Evolutionary and differential psychology: conceptual conflicts and the path to integration
TLDR
The present article identifies the conceptual and theoretical problems that have kept differential psychology isolated not only from evolutionary psychology, but from explanatory approaches in general.
Evolutionary Game Theory and Personality
TLDR
The links between evolutionary game theory and personality research are discussed, and it is argued that the behavioral sciences would profit from a closer integration of mechanistic and functional perspectives.
Personality, cognition and behavior in chimpanzees: a new approach based on Eysenck’s model
TLDR
The findings show that the PEN may be a good model to describe chimpanzee personality, and stress the importance of considering personality when interpreting the results of cognitive research in non-human primates.
Evolutionary psychology and intelligence research.
TLDR
It is suggested that general intelligence may simultaneously be an evolved adaptation and an individual-difference variable.

TLDR
It is argued that, although substantial problems remain, evolutionary biology can provide one means for identifying relations between individual differences and species-typical characteristics and some of the difficulties of this endeavor are identified.

TLDR
Some promising theoretical directions for tackling the explanatory question of personality and individual differences are highlighted, which include life-history theory, costly signaling theory, environmental variability in fitness optima, frequency-dependent selection, mutation load, and flexibly contingent shifts in strategy according to environmental conditions.
Evolution, Culture, and the Five-Factor Model
TLDR
A synthetic perspective that incorporates three levels of analysis: personality systems as universal psychological mechanisms, systematic group differences that can be illuminated by evolutionary theory, and individual differences is developed.
The evolutionary genetics of personality
TLDR
A general model of heritable personality differences is proposed that conceptualises intelligence as fitness components and personality traits as individual reaction norms of genotypes across environments, with different fitness consequences in different environmental niches.

In recent years, much progress has been made by those advocating the trait perspective in personality in explicating an underlying dispositional structure to individual differences, to the attributes
The Origins of Human Nature: Evolutionary Developmental Psychology
TLDR
The authors point out that an evolutionary-developmental perspective allows one to view gene-environment interactions, the significance of individual differences, and the role of behaviour and development in evolution in much greater depth.
What is a trait of personality
AT THE heart of all investigation of personality lies the puzzling problem of the nature of the unit or element which is the carrier of the distinctive behavior of a man. Reflexes and habits are too

TLDR
The author argues that each of the Big Five dimensions of human personality can be seen as the result of a trade-off between different fitness costs and benefits, and that genetic diversity will be retained in the population.
Evolutionary social psychology: Prospects and pitfalls
TLDR
Attending to the reliable phenomena discovered by traditional social psychology and the conceptual frameworks provided by modern evolutionary psychology will produce the most informed evolutionary social psychology.
