This study is included because it investigates presumed selection for a complex personality trait (impulsivity) among working lines of 2 breeds (those lines presumed to be selected for the ability to perform the breed traditional tasks), but also because it provides an example of the difficulties in defining a phenotype for large personality traits.
This study compared three behavior tests designed to assess "aggressive behavior." This was not an attempt at external validation of the tests, but rather an examination of inter-test reliability.
