Smillie (this issue) addressed the potential of neuroscience to identify the biological substrates that define the behavioural approach, avoidance and fight-freeze-flight systems that define reinforcement sensitivity theory (RST). Noting both the practical significance of insights into personality from RST and the difficulties in identifying its biological substrates, we suggest that these difficulties may indicate that the theory itself needs further testing.
