This chapter describes the conceptual meaning of behavioral inhibition in children. It also offers evidence from a series of ongoing empirical studies in the author's laboratory investigating this phenomenon. Specifically discussed are the infant predictions and physiological differences. The return of the idea of temperament is a significant growth in the fields of developmental psychology, personality, and psychopathology. The idea of temperament will turn the attention to interactions. It will also inscribe extra concern to emotional phenomena and alert psychologists to those events that have a primary effect on emotions, especially the families of emotions that are called guilt, shame, fear, anxiety, sadness, and excitement.

Keywords:   behavioral inhibition, children, temperament, guilt, shame, fear, anxiety, sadness, excitement, developmental psychology
