EYSENCK’S THEORY OF PERSONALITY (TYPE – CUM – TRAIT THEORY)
Organization of human behaviour is structured as follows
                                                                                
According to Eysenck, there are four levels of behavioural organization.
1.         At the lowest level, the specific responses are there. They grow out of particular response in any simple act.
2.         Habitual responses are formed at the second level.
3.         The formed habits are developed as traits of an individual.
4.         At the fourth level, the traits are grouped and it gives the type of personality. In the above figure explains the type of personality introvert.

Eysenck gives the following types of personality

1. Introversion – Extroversion
They are recognized as quit, introspective, reserved, reflective, disciplined and well ordered. Extroverts are sociable, outgoing, impulsive, optimistic and jolly.
2. Neurocism (Emotional Stability/ Instability): 
Emotional instability includes moody, touching, anxious and restless. Emotional stability includes calm, smiling and consistent.
3.  Psychotrism : 
Insensitive, opposed  and impulsive to the norms of the society

Educational Implications of this theory:
  1. The unconscious motivation places a vital role in learning.
  2. Freedom to learn
  3. Co-curricular activities must be given importance in schools
  4. The students must be sympathetically treated
  5. Developing positive attitude towards life.
