  Trait theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The factors are readily conceptualised as measurements of traits.
Correspondingly, trait theory has come under attack from those who preferred a more qualitiative, intuitive approach to personality analysis, and psychometrically inclined personality theorists are often accused of reifying as traits measurements that are simply mathematical abstractions.
In general personality theory, the traits discussed tend to be broad tendencies such as extraversion or neuroticism.

 Trait - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As synonym for trait can be sometimes used the term phenotype; the difference is that this second term can also indicate the total physical appearance or constitution.
An important reference point along this string is the centromere; the distance from a gene to the centromere is referred to as the gene's locus or map location.
A chromosomal region known to control a trait while the responsible gene within not being identified is referred to as a quantitative trait locus.

 TRAIT   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The traits of intelligence, dominance, self-confidence, high energy and activity level and task-relevant knowledge are most often mentioned and are commonly agreed upon across all leadership analyses.
(Another tie-in between traits and behavior.) Experience cannot be seen as a leadership characteristic, however, it may impact the leader’s use of various characteristics or traits that influence the leader’s ability to successfully carry out necessary leadership responsibilities.
It is undoubtably true that the personality or motivational orientation of the leader plays its part, for it will affect the likelihood of his attaining a leadership position and the way he will behave in that position, and hence, the likelihood of his success.

 Statistical Methods for Rater Agreement
Because disagreement on trait definition and disagreement on rating category widths are distinct components of disagreement, with different practical implications, a statistical approach to the data should ideally quantify each separately.
If the underlying trait is assumed to be continuous, use latent trait models to assess association among raters and estimate the correlation of ratings with the true trait.
(1) use latent trait models to assess association of raters' ratings with the true trait; (2) use latent trait models to test for similarity/differences among rater thresholds.

 Encyclopedia: Intelligence (trait)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Although nonscientists generally regard the concept of intelligence as having much broader scope, in psychology, the study of intelligence generally regards this behavioral trait as distinct from creativity, personality, character, or wisdom.
The mind is the term most commonly used to describe the higher functions of the human brain, particularly those of which humans are subjectively conscious, such as personality, thought, reason, memory, intelligence and emotion.

 Latent Trait Models for Rater Agreement
T is the latent trait level of a given case; Y is the perception or impression of a given rater of the case's trait level; b is a regression coefficient; and e is measurement error.
The latent trait is what the ratings intend measure--for example, disease severity, subject ability, or treatment effectiveness; this corresponds to the "signal" emitted by the case being rated.
The basic estimated parameters are: (1) parameters that describe the distribution of the latent trait in the sample or population; (2) the regression coefficient, b, for each rater; and (3) the threshold locations for each rater.
