Once registered, the effects of the past are indelible, incessant, and inescapable. They now are intrinsic elements of the individual’s makeup; they latch on and intrude into the current events of life, coloring, transforming, and distorting the passing scene. Although the residuals of subsequent experiences may override them, becoming more dominant internal stimuli, the presence of earlier memory traces remains in one form or another. In every thought and action the individual cannot help but carry these remnants into the present.

For purposes of definition, structural domain attributes might be described as cognitive-affective substrates and action dispositions of a quasi-permanent nature. Possessing a network of interconnecting pathways, these structures contain the internalized residues of the past in the form of memories and affects that are associated intrapsychically with conceptions of self and others. Four structural domains relevant to personality will be briefly described. Numerous variations, one for each clinical personality prototype in Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fourth edition (DSM-IV; American Psychiatric Association, 1994), have been specified in other publications (Millon with Davis, 1996).
