Summary This thesis examined a prediction of Reinforcement Sensitivity Theory regarding the association between personality traits and motivated behaviour and, whether reward-and-punishment sensitivity is associated with Attention-deficit / Hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Results supported the predicted association between personality and motivated behaviour, but not the predicted association between reward-and-punishment sensitivity and ADHD.
Notes This thesis is supported by the clinical portfolio "The utility of personality assessment in child and adolescent mental health" to fulfill the degree requirements.
