In this paper, we discuss some techniques for achieving swarm intelligent robots through the use of traits of personality. Traits of personality are characteristics of each robot that, altogether, define the robot's behaviours. We discuss the use of evolutionary psychology in order to select a set of traits of personality that will evolve due to a learning process based on reinforcement learning. The use of Game Theory is introduced and a simulation showing its potential is reported.
