The dimensions of approach/withdrawal, adaptability, and quality of mood have proven most consistent. Persistence and intensity, on the other hand, have shown poor reliability. However, the NYLS investigators, like Goldsmith and Campos (1982), theorized that traits need not necessarily exhibit considerable stability over time. According to the NYLS investigators, the interplay of continuity and change does not prevent certain stable traits or patterns from forming. But since both continuity and change are forever present, certain temperamental traits will remain stable in age periods during which others change.
These were: 1) clear-cut consistency, 2) consistency in some aspects of temperament at one period and in other aspects at other times, 3) distortion of the expression of temperament by other factors such as psychodynamic patterns, 4) consistency in temperament but qualitative change in temperament-environment interaction, and 5) change in a conspicuous temperamental trait. Statistically, they found that any individual child might show one or a combination of several of these patterns (Thomas & Chess, 1977).
Temperament's pervasive interpersonal impact is evident in an infant's perception and functioning in the world. By affecting the infant's response to stimuli, temperament influences the way others respond to the infant, and by coloring social interactions, temperament creates a set of expectations in significant others that tends to reinforce the expected behavior in the infant. Goldsmith and Campos specified that although an infant's overall temperament is stable, behaviors expressing individual traits need not be stable from the neonatal period onward.
