Book Description :

This handbook is the first volume to provide a comprehensive look at personality development. It features a state-of-the-art examination of the field, an area that is enjoying a resurgence in popularity. Five major types of advances, all of which are represented in this volume, are the result of the recent burst in research activity in this area: 1) new theoretical perspectives, 2) higher-quality empirical studies, 3) more sophisticated research designs and analyses, 4) attention to development across the lifespan, and 5) the growing prominence of interdisciplinary approaches to personality development. The Handbook of Personality Development is comprehensive across the lifespan, in its range of personality constructs, and in its coverage of theoretical and methodological frameworks. It is the first volume to address the most important personality development theoretical frameworks in one location--the evolutionary, physiological, behavioral genetic, and socio-cultural perspectives. The book also reviews new statistical techniques that allow for the estimation of individual differences in stability and the analysis of change. The latter part of the book focuses on personality development over the lifespan, from infancy to older adulthood. The authors address personality variables such as emotion regulation, temperament, and self-concept across the lifespan. The book concludes with a compelling capstone chapter by Dan McAdams on how personality develops. The Handbook of Personality Development provides an historical account of, and summary of, the most significant and important findings in the area, along with suggestions for future research. Intended for researchers and advanced students in personality, developmental, social, clinical, and educational psychology, as well as related fields such as family studies, sociology, education, nursing, behavioral genetics, neuropsychology, and psychophysiology, the handbook also serves as a valuable resource in advanced courses that address personality development.

The Development of Self definition and Relatedness from Adolescence Through Adulthood

Book Description :

"Self-definition and relatedness are fundamental personality developmental tasks that engage individuals across the entire lifespan (Blatt, 1974, Blatt & Luyten, 2009; Luyten & Blatt, 2013). Healthy psychological maturation requires the development of a sense of self that is differentiated, integrated, and positive, and the ability to form close interpersonal relationships that are mature, intimate, mutually satisfying, and reciprocal. A failure or delay in the development of self-definition contributes to the development of a personality trait labelled self-criticism, whereas a failure or delay in the development of relatedness contributes to the development of a personality style labelled dependency. This thesis expands contributes to our knowledge of personality development across the lifespan. In articles 1 and 2, 200 young adults completed measures of recalled parenting and peer relationships as well as a measure of their current levels of self-criticism and dependency. In article 1, I provide the first evidence that highly self-critical young adults recall higher levels of peer victimization in adolescence, over and above their recalled parenting experiences. In article 2, I extend this to dependency by showing that highly dependent young adults recall poorer quality attachments to their peers during adolescence, again over and above their experiences with their parents. In order to longitudinally confirm the effects of a variety of experiences (e.g., parents, peers, romantic partners, siblings, and academic achievement) on dependency and self-criticism in adolescence, I then examine the effects of these experiences on change in dependency and self-criticism, and the role these two personality factors play in the development of depressive and anxiety symptoms. In article 3, 276 early adolescents completed a measure of self-criticism and dependency as well as measures of depressive and anxiety symptoms at baseline and again two years later. Every three months during the study interval, they completed measures of common negative life events and hassles. Results showed that events coded as self-definitional uniquely predicted increases in self-criticism, which in turn predicted increases in depressive symptoms. In contrast, events coded as relatedness-oriented uniquely predicted increases in dependency, which in turn uniquely predicted the development of anxiety symptoms.Finally, in study 4, I provide the first test of lifespan developmental hypotheses of self-definition and relatedness. One Canadian sample and one multicultural sample ranging in age from 18 to 59 completed measures of self-criticism, dependency, neuroticism, agreeableness, and depressive symptoms. Results showed that, adjusting for depressive symptoms as well as neuroticism and agreeableness, older age was linearly associated with improvements in both self-definition and relatedness from age 18 to 59. This pattern of age-related differences was seen in both Western and Eastern cultural samples, suggesting that effects are due to change over time, rather than cohort effects. I then discuss the contributions of these studies to our understanding of personality development across the lifespan. In particular, results suggest that that a variety of developmental experiences, including peers, parents, romantic partners, and academic accomplishments, affect personality development. Furthermore, personality development may affected by experiences that are congruent with specific personality factors. Finally, results suggest that personality is not set by a certain age, but rather continues to evolve across adulthood. I also propose potential explanations for the variety of effects shown. I address the limitations to these studies, and conclude by outlining avenues for future research, as well as the implications of these findings for clinical interventions. " --

Book Description :

Both an individual's personality and well-being are important throughout their lives. This book explores the current research on links between personality and well-being, and indicates possible directions for future research. This collection brings together empirical studies which focus on personality predictors of well-being and social adjustment in key developmental stages: adolescence, middle adulthood and late adulthood, to conclude that although personality traits are linked to well-being their influence can vary throughout the stages of development. The wide variety of behaviours and outcomes in which personality variables are involved suggests that further research is needed into the influence and interaction of environmental factors with personality traits.

Book Description :

Intraindividual variability (IIV) of human development and behavior across the entire life-span is explored in this new book. Leading researchers summarize recent findings on the extent, role, and function of IIV in human development with a focus on how, when, and why individuals change over time. The latest theoretical, methodological, and technological advances are reviewed. The book explores the historical and theoretical background and challenges of IIV research along with its role and function in childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Edited to maximize consistency and accessibility, each chapter includes an introduction and a review of the research and most explore future directions, new theoretical developments, and conclusions and implications. Readers are shown that by focusing on the individual as a unit of analysis across different time scales, conditions, and situations, researchers can effectively demonstrate behavioral and developmental regularities at different points of the life-span. As such this book is a must have for anybody interested in IIV research. The book explores: -New designs and methods for the analysis of intensive repeated measures data. -The importance of real-time data for more time sensitive and ecologically valid measurements. -The role and function of intraindividual variability in behavior and development across the life-span -- from infancy to later life. -Numerous examples of how intraindividual variability research is conducted. -Topics and findings that are commonly treated in disparate bodies of literature from various disciplines. Part 1 provides a historical, conceptual, and methodological overview of the study of intraindividual variability (IIV). IIV during childhood and adolescence and its application in the investigation of development of language acquisition, infant-parent interactions, development of motor skills, cognitive development, mood regulation, and identity development are examined in Part 2. Part 3 focuses on IIV during adult development, including its use in neuropsychological functioning and attention and in personality development and mood regulation. IIV in the context of adults’ health behavior is also reviewed. Part 4 examines the key issues and challenges of IIV research in human development such as whether IIV in adult development is an indicator of vulnerability or resilience, the association between short-term IIV and long-term developmental change, and multiple time-scale design and analysis. The volume concludes with a look at the future of intraindividual variation analysis. Intended for advanced students and researchers in developmental psychology across the life-span, social, personality, and health psychology, as well as sociology, family studies, gerontology, education, and medicine, interested in intraindividual variability of behavior and its role in human development, this book also serves as a text for graduate courses on longitudinal analysis, multilevel modeling, and/or (advanced) data analysis offered in these departments. Knowledge in human development or life course sociology and graduate-level statistics is recommended.

This welcome resource traces the evolution of self-concept clarity and brings together diverse strands of research on this important and still-developing construct. Locating self-concept clarity within current models of personality, identity, and the self, expert contributors define the construct and its critical roles in both individual and collective identity and functioning. The book examines commonly-used measures for assessing clarity, particularly in relation to the more widely understood concept of self-esteem, with recommendations for best practices in assessment. In addition, a wealth of current data highlights the links between self-concept clarity and major areas of mental wellness and dysfunction, from adaptation and leadership to body image issues and schizophrenia. Along the way, it outlines important future directions in research on self-concept clarity. Included in the coverage: · Situating self-concept clarity in the landscape of personality. · Development of self-concept clarity across the lifespan. · Self-concept clarity and romantic relationships. · Who am I and why does it matter? Linking personal identity and self-concept clarity. · Consequences of self-concept clarity for well-being and motivation. · Self-concept clarity and psychopathology. Self-Concept Clarity fills varied theoretical, empirical, and practical needs across mental health fields, and will enhance the work of academics, psychologists interested in the construct as an area of research, and clinicians working with clients struggling with developing and improving their self-concept clarity.

Book Description :

This volume presents fascinating new theoretical perspectives and empirical findings on the life-span development of talent. It shows how talents are the result of the acquisition of a sequence of skills and how the acquisition of these skills is facilitated by changes in the individual's environment. It explores to what degree the development of high intelligence or achievement is similar to the development of specific domains such as personality, morality, painting, musical performance, or professional skills. It questions whether the development of talent observed for specific groups is similar to individual cases and how the different numbers of highly talented women and men in several domains are to be explained.
