The correct response is Traits are relatively consistent across a variety of settings.

Explanation:

Trait approach is an important perspective in psychology and it concentrates on how to identify specific personality types. Traits are stable characteristic and there are usually a cluster of different personality traits in close association that manifest in how a subject responds to problems and how a subject respond to particular situations.  Gordon Allbort was among the pioneers of this view and he saw traits as the building blocks of a person's personality.

B. We can place a person somewhere along a continuum of behaviors

Explanation:

One strength of the trait perspectives is their ability to categorize observable behaviors. Researchers found that if we examine the aggregate behaviors of individuals,it provides us with a strong correlation with traits.

observing the behaviors of an individual over time and in varying circumstances provides evidence for the personality traits categorized in trait theories.

The limitation of trait theories is that personal observations or subjective self-reports are relatively hard to measure.

Self-report measures require that an individual be introspective enough to understand their own behavior. Personal observation measures require that an individual spend enough time observing someone else in a number of situations so as to be able to provide an accurate assessment.

The social cognitive approach to personality.

Explanation:

The Social Cognitive approach to personality was theorized by Albert Bandura.

According to him, the social-cognitive approach to personality is the approach that emphasizes on observational learning. Meaning, that a person will learn and grow what he/she observes and judges. After observing the person will imitate those attributes whether positive or negative. The person will be rewarded/punished then accordingly what he imitates.

In the given case, David observed that his brother is a whiner and that his such behavior is not acceptable by his parents. So, he observes and judges that it is not right. So, his observation and imitations are an example of "the social cognitive approach to personality".

So, the correct option is B.
