Personality psychology is about the fundamentals of human nature, and is the subject matter that attracts students to psychology in the first place. The major theories of personality contain important insights about human nature, but they are often unconnected with modern research. Personality: Theories and Applications bridges the gap between research-oriented books and traditional theory books by combining a strong historical perspective with practical applications that largely concern personalities in the workplace. Designed for the first course in personality psychology, Personality: Theories and Applications serves as an ideal introduction to personality psychology. It is written in a clear and accessible style that thousands of students have found engaging as it focuses on the core content of personality psychology. Personality: Theories and Applications also provides a natural transition to a second course in research topics providing a context for understanding the relevance of the topics.
Section topics include:
1. Introduction to Personality Psychology
2. Classical Psychodynamic Theories
3. Traditional American Theories
4. Social Psychological Theory
5. Responses to Social Psychological Theory
