A couple of quotes from Cloninger

Perhaps randomly… C. Robert Cloninger once wrote:

“Both physiological and psychosocial studies show that mental health depends on the development of self-aware consciousness.” (p.231)

Personality is the crystallization of one’s usual pattern of thinking. What are described as personality traits are merely the average pattern of thought, which [-p.240] nevertheless has a dynamic range….” (pp.239-240)

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
