We address how trait self-control and trait concern for others

relate to the concepts of monitored and intrinsic Welfare Tradeoff

Ratios (WTRs), respectively, and how recent work on personality,

revenge, and forgiveness are informed by the adaptationist perspective

proposed in the target article. We also discuss how the proposed

adaptationist perspective provides clues to some previously puzzling

findings on revenge.
