    Abstract

    This comment critiques Corr's (2010) characterization of the personality traits associated with the elements of Gray's conceptual nervous system: The behavioural inhibition system (BIS), the behavioural approach system (BAS) and the fight-flight-freeze system (FFFS). Most attention is paid to the FFFS because least is known about its manifestation in personality. Additionally, I suggest that Corr's framework for understanding automatic and controlled processing is useful for developing theories of the biological systems underlying traits that are not directly related to BIS, BAS and FFFS.
