Confounding Factors (Epidemiology) definition: Factors that can cause or prevent the outcome of interest, are not intermediate variables, and are not associated with the factor(s) under investigation. They give rise to situations in which the effects of two processes are not separated, or the contribution of causal factors cannot be separated, or the measure of the effect of exposure or risk is distorted because of its association with other factors influencing the outcome of the study.
Effect Modifiers (Epidemiology) definition: Factors that modify the effect of the putative causal factor(s) under study.
Personality Trait definition: The characteristics in behavior that a certain person has.
