Despite close interactions between learning and personality research in the mid-20th century, in recent years there has been little interaction between these fields of research. Nevertheless, there is much that the two fields of research can learn from each other. The current special collection encompasses conceptual, theoretical, and empirical papers about the interplay between learning and personality, with a focus on basic learning phenomena such as habituation and conditioning and basic personality traits such as those considered in Reinforcement Sensitivity Theory, the Big Five, the HEXACO, or other personality frameworks.
