In this chapter, we review the study of behavioral inhibition and temperamental shyness as viewed across four academic generations (Generation I, Jerome Kagan; Generation II, Nathan Fox; Generation III, Louis Schmidt; Generation IV, Kristie Poole), spanning over seven decades and representing multiple student-mentor relationships. Jerome Kagan and colleagues studied these characteristics as two extreme poles called behavioral inhibition and uninhibition to the unfamiliar using an inductive methodology based on observation of behavior and record of physiological measurements using correlational techniques associated with longitudinal studies.

At age 4, the 22 formerly inhibited children, compared with the 21 uninhibited children, were socially inhibited with the other child, displayed a higher and more stable heart rate, were more reluctant to guess at difficult problems, and preferentially fixated the passive figure. These data, which are consonant with the work of others, suggest that a tendency toward behavioral inhibition or lack of inhibition to the unfamiliar is moderately stable over the preschool years and possibly influenced by biological factors.

I have been skeptical of assertions that Jerome Kagan’s longitudinal study, begun in 1989, demonstrates that high-reactive infants turn into introverts, and low-reactive infants into extraverts.
