about this item

This textbook illustrates how personality theories can help students understand their own personalities, rather than examining personality through theorists, theories, and research. It presents theories and research as answers to questions students have about personality psychology. It divides the student's life into past, present, and future selves--genetic and temperamental influences and the role of early environments; identity and self-esteem, needs, motives, goals, and stress; and expectations, plans, and self-regulation, as well as personality continuity and change--answering questions through research related to psychodynamic, trait theory, cognitive/social learning, humanist/existential/narrative, and evolutionary psychology. The introductory section addresses basic issues in the field, including the definition of personality, the meaning of theory, and personality research methods and assessment. This edition has new chapters on research methods and disorders of personality, and updated research. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
