This thesis addresses two long-standing dilemmas in personality psychology. The first dilemma is that of identifying the latent dimensions of personality. The second is to identify how best to measure psychological constructs. Novel solutions to both of these problems are presented in two articles. The first article (published), ‘An atlas of person...
Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) has been identified at post-mortem in Australian football codes players. Detailed and objective clinical and radiological characterization of patients at-risk of sporting and non-sporting repetitive concussive and subconcussive traumatic brain injury (RC/SCI) is important to our understanding of traumatic ence...
A novel two-dimensional matrix taxonomy, or atlas, of personality, emotion and behaviour is presented. The two dimensions of the atlas, affiliation and dominance, are demonstrated to have theoretical foundations in neurobiology and social psychology. Both dimensions are divided into five ordinal categories, creating a square matrix of 25 cells. A n...

Instinctive behaviours have evolved favouring the maternal-infant dyad based on fundamental processes of neurological development, including oral tactile imprinting and latchment. Latchment is the first stage of emotional development based on the successful achievement of biological imprinting. The mechanisms underpinning imprinting are identified...
High order multivariate data is not able to be graphically represented, so the human ability to locate structure becomes ineffectual. There exist many refined methods for multivariate data analysis, however many of these methods also become unusable when the data is of high order, they too suffer from being unable to locate the essential structure...
The goal of this project is to catalogue all English language words descriptive of personality, emotion and behaviour. Once catalogued, to identify a taxonomy capable of encoding all words in the catalogue.
