Handling stress does not reflect personality in female zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata).
TLDR
The authors experimentally investigated to what extent handling stress was correlated with personality in female zebra finches, as assessed from a suite of repeatable behavioral traits, finding that breathing rate was repeatable across individuals, but was not related to any behavioral trait, suggesting that it cannot be used to quickly predict personality.
Aggression as a personality trait in Egernia whitii mechanisms and outcomes
Personality can be thought of as an individual‟s aggregated summary trend in behavior, capturing characteristic patterns of behavior that persist across time. Animal personality is ubiquitous
Personality Predicts Social Dominance in Male Domestic Fowl
TLDR
It is found that males that more quickly explored a novel arena, or remained vigilant for a longer period following the playback of a warning call were more likely to obtain a dominant position, and several behavioural traits independently play a role in the establishment of social status, which in turn can have implications for the reproductive success of different personality types.
Personality affects zebra finch feeding success in a producer–scrounger game
Social Dominance in a Gregarious Bird is Related to Body Size But not to Standard Personality Assays
TLDR
Standard personality assays may fail to capture individual differences relevant to predict social behaviour, and biological and methodological explanations for these results are discussed, such as social behaviour being in part an emergent property of groups rather than an intrinsic property of individuals.
Morphological Correlates of Personality in Female Asian Particolored Bats (Vespertilio sinensis)
TLDR
The study used female Asian particolored bats to investigate three personality characteristics (exploration, activity, and aggression) using the classic hole-board test and examined their relationships with body size using an information-theoretical approach, showing significantly repeatable exploration but not significant correlations among the three personality traits.
Personality and body condition have additive effects on motivation to feed in Zebra Finches Taeniopygia guttata
TLDR
It is shown that personality traits, both individu-ally or combined using a principal component analysis, and body condition have additive effects on latency to feed following food deprivation in the Zebra Finch Taeniopygia gut-tata.
Personality and its fitness consequences in the Seychelles warbler (Acrocephalus sechellensis)
TLDR
The results show that there are consistent among individual differences in behaviour in wild cooperative breeders that may be generated by future fitness potential and are associated with reproductive behaviour within the social pair.

The interaction between personality, offspring fitness and food abundance in North American red squirrels.
TLDR
The magnitude and direction of the effects changed among life history stages and years, possibly in association with food supply in some cases, and may indicate a role for balancing selection in the maintenance of personality.
Personality, habitat use, and their consequences for survival in North American red squirrels Tamiasciurus hudsonicus
TLDR
Risk-taking is predicted by personality in this population of North American red squirrels, and they affect both survival and territorial bequeathal, and these fitness tradeoffs may lead to the maintenance of variation in personality.

TLDR
This study characterizes for the first time a relationship between an individual personality trait (boldness) and a reproductive fitness correlate (fecundity) in fishes.

TLDR
This study provides novel evidence for a boldness syndrome in sunfish, as well as insight into how behavioral types (e.g., shy/bold) may evolve and be maintained in natural populations.

The relation between dominance and exploratory behavior is context-dependent in wild great tits
TLDR
It is shown that fast-exploring territorial males had higher dominance ranks than did slow-exploration territorial males in two out of three samples, and that dominance related negatively to the distance between the site of observation and the territory.
Additive and nonadditive genetic variation in avian personality traits
TLDR
Both additive and dominant genetic effects were important determinants of phenotypic variation in exploratory behaviour and boldness, however, no sex-dependent expression was observed in either of these personality traits.
Fitness consequences of avian personalities in a fluctuating environment
TLDR
It is shown that selection on a personality trait with high heritability fluctuates across years within a natural bird population, and it is expected that the observed fluctuations in environmental factors lead to fluctuations in competition for space and food, and these, in association with variations in population density, lead to a variation in selection pressure, which maintains genetic variation in personalities.
