The aim of this chapter is to update the status of the art of the relationship between morningness-eveningness preference and personality. To this end, keeping in mind the wide number of personality models available in literature, this chapter discusses three of them: 1) Eysenck’s model; 2) Big Five model; 3) Cloninger’s model. On the basis of main data reported in papers, it is suggested that future studies should focus on the Cloninger’s psychobiological model of personality because it takes into account both biological (temperament dimensions) and socio-cultural (character dimensions) aspects, being thus useful to address their respective importance linking circadian rhythms with personality characteristics. To this aim, cross-cultural comparisons are specifically needed. Implications of this chapter in several applied areas are also discussed.

Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to update the status of the art of the relationship between morningness-eveningness preference and personality. To this end, keeping in mind the wide number of personality models available in literature, this chapter discusses three of them: 1) Eysenck’s model; 2) Big Five model; 3) Cloninger’s model. On the basis of main data reported in papers, it is suggested that future studies should focus on the Cloninger’s psychobiological model of personality because it takes into account both biological (temperament dimensions) and socio-cultural (character dimensions) aspects, being thus useful to address their respective importance linking circadian rhythms with personality characteristics. To this aim, cross-cultural comparisons are specifically needed. Implications of this chapter in several applied areas are also discussed.
