Uher (this issue) proposed that we expand understanding of human personality and its biological, temperamental and evolutionary origins by cataloging behavioural repertoires of humans and nonhuman animals. The method is difficult to implement. It relies on the ability to distinguish behaviours showing interspecies or intercultural differences but not intraspecies or intracultural differences from those showing individual differences both within and across species or cultures. Nevertheless, it may be an important way to transcend anthropomorphism and cultural biases that may limit current understanding of social and temperamental transactions involved in personality development.
