Describe biological factors that influence the formation of personality. Weegy:
esearchers scientifically investigate the effect of genetic influence through the use of family and twin studies. [ These studies, coupled with the recently developed technologies of neuroscience, have led to the fairly solid conclusion that many personality traits (e.g., dispositions to behave in particular ways across situations and time) are inherited and biologically determined (Cloninger, 2005).

Examine the relationship of biological factors to Maslow’s theory of personalityWeegy:
Maslow's hierarchy of needs is often portrayed in the shape of a pyramid with the largest, [ most fundamental levels of needs at the bottom and the need for self-actualization at the top. While the pyramid has become the de facto way to represent the hierarchy, Maslow himself never used a pyramid to describe these levels in any of his writings on the subject.
The most fundamental and basic four layers of the pyramid contain what Maslow called "deficiency needs" or "d-needs": esteem, friendship and love, security, and physical needs. If these "deficiency needs" are not met ? with the exception of the most fundamental (physiological) need ? there may not be a physical indication, but the individual will feel anxious and tense. Maslow's theory suggests that the most basic level of needs must be met before the individual will strongly desire (or focus motivation upon) the secondary or higher level needs. Maslow also coined the term Metamotivation to describe the motivation of people who go beyond the scope of the basic needs and strive for constant betterment.
The human mind and brain are complex and have parallel processes running at the same time, thus many different motivations from various levels of Maslow's hierarchy can occur at the same time. Maslow spoke clearly about these levels and their satisfaction in terms such as "relative," "general," and "primarily." Instead of stating that the individual focuses on a certain need at any given time, Maslow stated that a certain need "dominates" the human organism. Thus Maslow acknowledged the likelihood that the different levels of motivation could occur at any time in the human mind, but he focused on identifying the basic types of motivation and the order in which they should be met. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maslow%27s_hierarchy_of_needs
