Psychology of Personality


This comprehensive introduction to the field of personality psychology integrates its discussion of personality theories, research, assessment techniques and applications of specific theories. Most chapters are organized around the basic assumptions put forth by a major theorist or a group of theorists which are then augmented by the relevant research, assessment issues and applications. Among the schools of thought presented are the psychodynamic, social psychological, phenomenological, humanistic, biological, behavioural and social cognitive viewpoints. Students are introduced to the theories of Jung, Adler, Horney, Erikson, Sullivan, Rogers, Maslow, Kelly, Rotter, Bandura and Mischel, among others. They also learn about specific dimensions of personality, including self concept, gender, aggression, anxiety, subjective well-being, and achievement striving. These are examined in terms of both classic and contemporary personality research.
