Rapisarda Fabio, MD, Merenda Aluette, Mezzatesta Concetta

This paper seeks to analyze the impact of perceptual process, as a way of perceiving ourselves and others, as well as personality development and social attitudes which emerge from early interactions in the primary environment. Although many studies have highlighted the importance of early social interactions for both the genetic and psychobiological components of personality development, there is actually little data that examines the influence of these genetic factors on this process. This study focuses on the genetic bases of the perception process and its role in how we experience emotions and how we perceive the surrounding environment, starting with early interactions with caregivers. The paper examines, moreover, the connections between emotions and Internal Working Models (IWM), as factors that can implement or inhibit such personality development.
