Basis of personality involves genetics, physiology and environment and to understand personality, it is necessary to create a theory that identifies its main dimensions, devise the means to measure the dimensions and link them with experimental procedures.

He originally identified two main personality dimensions: extraversion-introversion and stability-neuroticism (Bradley et al. 2005). The two major dimensions of personality, according to Eysenck are extraversion-introversion and neuroticism. Extraverts and sociable, optimistic, impulsive and with actions enhanced by positivity. Introverts are quiet parochial, serious, restrained and inwardly focused, lastly neuroticism, it is something that is referred to as emotional instability. The main characteristic of neurotics is that their anxiety level is out of balance with the situation at hand however neurotics who are free of anxiety and fear are labelled psychopaths, they cannot recognise the consequences of their actions.
