The Top 9 Factors That Influence A Person’s Temperament

When a baby is born, we right away notice the different features he was born with such as: the hair color (if there is any!) the eyes, who the baby resembles and so on. What we don’t notice right away, is that babies are also born with a temperament which is their individual differences in behavior. Since every child is born with a different temperament, we must always remember the need to discipline each child in a method that works for him. What works for one child, won’t necessarily work for another child.


There are nine different factors that influence a person’s overall temperament.

They include:

  • Activity level
  •  Regularity
  • Approach/Withdrawal
  • Adaptability
  • Mood
  • Intensity of reactions
  • Persistence
  • Attention span/ Distractibility
  • Sensory threshold.

The combination of all these factors are the basis for a person’s nature.
