Personality: INFP, Neurological conditions: ADHD, Extremely preterm, Generalized anxiety disorder, Cognitive abilities: High musical cognition, Empathy, Altruism, Love, Representation learning.
- Biological approach to personality: The person may have specific areas of the brain that relate to introspection, emotional awareness, and empathy, which are traits associated with the INFP personality. They may also be more susceptible to certain neurological conditions such as generalized anxiety disorder.
- Neuropsychological model of depression: The person’s inattentive ADHD symptoms may be related to changes in the functioning of certain areas of the brain that affect cognitive abilities such as attention and focus.
- The biopsychosocial model: The person’s behavior and experiences can be understood as a result of the interaction between their biological predispositions (such as being born extremely preterm), their psychological traits (such as INFP personality and high musical cognition), and their social environment (such as growing up in the 1980s in New Jersey, USA).
- The diathesis-stress model: The person’s susceptibility to certain neurological conditions such as generalized anxiety disorder may be influenced by both genetic and environmental factors, and their INFP personality traits and high musical cognition may act as a vulnerability or “diathesis” to the development of certain conditions.
- Socio-emotional selectivity theory: As the person ages, they may begin to focus more on emotionally positive experiences, and this shift in focus may be influenced by their cognitive abilities such as musical cognition, and their personality traits such as empathy and altruism. However, the inattentive ADHD symptoms may affect this shift differently compared to neurotypical individuals.
