Personality Theories in Psychology
Although personality psychology is not considered a unified school of thought, personality theories have been, and continue to be, an important part of psychology. Using information from Chapter 11, as well as at least one outside source, choose one approach to studying personality that matches your own ideas about personality, and answer the following questions:
- What is the method or approach to personality that you chose? Discuss some key points of the approach or theory.
- Which school of thought is this approach tied to, such as behaviorism, psychoanalysis, Gestalt psychology, humanistic psychology? How can you tell?
- From this approach, is it possible to measure personality? If so, how would this be accomplished? What kinds of terms are used to describe and discuss personality (for example, traits, dimensions, situational variables, factors, et cetera)?
Remember to provide at least one scholarly source (an article, book, or website) along with material from the text, to support your discussion.
Do not forget to answer all the bullet questions and give the references.
