Pregnancy and Personality
Evidence for the biological basis of personality comes from many different sources, including temperament, behavioral genetics, and brain measure research. First, temperament is the biologically based tendency to behave in particular ways from very early in life. The prenatal environment may play an important role in shaping personality. In fact, the amount of stress the mother experiences during pregnancy may alter the infant’s own stress response. That is, infants born to mothers who have experienced an unusual amount of stress during pregnancy tend to have impaired stress function; higher baseline levels of stress hormones; and a faster, stronger, and more pronounced physiological response to stress, all of which persist into childhood.
