the “big five” personality traits: Emotional life of your Brain

The artists of the Six Dynasties (220-618 AD) such as Xie He and the aforementioned Gu Kaizhi laid the foundations of Chinese painting, and then the painters of the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD) formed the first golden age of Chinese Art, in which the landscape was a key element.

I believe that every individual personality and temperament reflects a different combination of the six dimensions of Emotional Style.
.
.
Take the “big five” personality traits, one of the standard classification systems in psychology: openness to new experience, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism:
.
.
Someone high in openness to new experience has strong Social Intuition. She is also very self-aware and tends to be focused in her Attention style.
.
.
A conscientious person has well-developed Social Intuition, a focused style of Attention, and acute Sensitivity to Context.
.
.
An extraverted person bounces back rapidly from adversity and thus is at the Fast to Recover end of the Resilience spectrum. She maintains a positive Outlook.
.
.
An agreeable person has a highly attuned Sensitivity to Context and strong Resilience; he also tends to maintain a positive Outlook.
.
.
Someone high in neuroticism is slow to recover from adversity. He has a gloomy, negative Outlook, is relatively insensitive to context, and tends to be unfocused in his Attention style.
