2 PERSONALITY ASSESSMENT AND THEORIES A personality theory gives a direction of the what different type of variables could be included in personality assessments. There are four theories of personality. There is Psychodynamic, Humanistic, Trait, and Social Learning. These four represent most all of the assessment tests that we use as well. (The first of the theory is Psychodynamic theory, which is: a psychological approach to personality assessment. The basis of the psychodynamic theory is measurement of the unconscious thoughts, feelings, and motives) (Axia College, 2010, Week 6 Reading). (The second theory is the Humanistic theory, which is: a theory that believes that personality is a personal drive to do better for one’s own benefit) (Axia College, 2010, Week 6 Reading). (The trait theory would explain the many differences in our personalities such as how we each think and act) (Axia College, 2010, Week 6 Reading).
