Book Description :

This revision of the Schultz's popular text surveys the field, presenting theory-by-theory coverage of the major theorists who represent the psychoanalytic, neopsychoanalytic, life-span, trait, humanistic, cognitive, behavioral, and social-learning approaches, as well as clinical and experimental work. Where warranted, the authors show how the development of certain theories was influenced by events in a theorist's personal and professional life. This thoroughly revised Seventh Edition now incorporates more examples, tables, and figures to help bring the material to life for students. The new content in this edition reflects the dynamism in the field. The text explores how race, gender, and culture issues figure in the study of personality and in personality assessment. In addition, a final integrative chapter looks at the study of personality theories and suggests conclusions that can be drawn from the many theorists' work.

Book Description :

Designed as a text for both graduate and undergraduate students, this book, originally published in 1995, presents an intrapsychic explanation of human behaviour – concepts based on psychological processes and ‘structures’ within the mind. In this context, a unique treatment of personality theory is introduced. It focuses on Freud, Kelly and Angyal: Freud’s psychoanalytic theory of personality based on desires, Kelly’s personal construct theory for thinking, and Angyal’s holistic concepts of personality. Each theory is given a detailed analysis in separate chapters. Freud’s psychoanalytic theory is cast as a theory of motivation, Kelly’s personal construct theory as a theory of cognition, and then it is noted that there is no comprehensive theory of personality based on emotion. Although Angyal’s holistic theory is rarely described in modern textbooks, Lester includes this because none of the other holistic theorists rival Angyal in their range of hypothetical constructs or descriptive terms. Then, in sections dealing with alternative viewpoints, the author shows how other personality theorists actually endorse and expand upon the ideas expressed by the aforementioned three, albeit with different terminology. Recognizing the diversity of holistic views in theories of personality, several counterpoint chapters are devoted to the holistic ideas. Lester separates these into three major areas: theorists who have focused on the split in the mind between the real and ideal self; recent theorists who explore the possibility that the mind is a ‘multiplicity of selves’; and theorists who, though not having their viewpoints sufficiently articulated in the literature, are still well established in the history of psychology. Other features include a presentation of the material in modern viewpoints, instead of the precise and perhaps outdated style as written by the individual theorists, and boxed highlights in each section, providing students with practical capsule information for easy reading.

Hugely influential study of the psychology of authoritarianism What makes a fascist? Are there character traits that make someone more likely to vote for the far right? The Authoritarian Personality is not only one of the most significant works of social psychology ever written, it also marks a milestone in the development of Adorno’s thought, showing him grappling with the problem of fascism and the reasons for Europe’s turn to reaction. Over half a century later and with the rise of right-wing populism and the reemergence of the far-right in recent years, this hugely influential study remains as insightful and relevant as ever. This new edition includes an introduction by Frankfurt School scholar Peter E. Gordon and contains the first-ever publication of Adorno’s subsequent critical notes on the project.

Book Description :

Personality psychology is the study of the person. As such, it is arguably the broadest, most "philosophical", branch of psychology. It involves an examination of the effects of genetics, the physical environment, culture, upbringing, trauma, pathology and more. In as much as this is clearly a huge undertaking, it is as much a matter of competing theories as it is of empirical research. For this reason, it remains a tradition in the field to look at various attempts over the last 100-plus years to tackle the issue: "What is it to be a person?" This book attempts to provide an open-minded review of the most important of these theories.

Book Description :

INTRODUCTIONHello and welcome to our book on Psychology of Personality. The aim of the book is to gain in-depth knowledge of the psychology of the personality, to understand why this part of psychological science is important, and how generally personal psychology contributes to the behaviour and life of the person. The book is divided into five main topics into the most influential theoretical concepts and schools on understanding the notion of personality.First, we will introduce you the psychoanalytic personality theory created by Sigmund Freud. We will turn our attention to the three psychic structures (Id, Ego and the Super-ego), their functions and meaning. We will look at the notion of a person in terms of classical psychoanalysis. We will introduce you Freud's ideas and views on the Life Drive and the Death Drive.Second, we will present you the ideas and views of Karl Gustav Jung and analytical psychology about the personality. We will focus on some differences in Jung and Freud's views and we will look at the three personality structures in the theory of Jung. We will introduce you the idea of the personal consciousness, personal unconscious and the collective unconscious, their meaning and functions, and we will look at the typology of the personality created by Jung, which most people know as the psychological concepts "introvert" and "extravert".Third, we will present you the ideas and views of Erich Fromm and his critique of Sigmund Freud's theories. We'll look at the escape mechanisms dealt with by Fromm. We will focus on Karen Horney's insight into the female psyche and her views on anxiety, and we will look at the personal orientations described by her.Fourth, we will present you the ideas and views of Alfred Adler and individual psychology. We will look at his social approach to personality. We will look at the social interest, its significance and its functions. We will introduce you Adler's idea of the feeling of inferiority and the inferiority complex and how it can be overcome. And we will introduce you the hypothesis raised by Adler about the leader of our lives, namely the sense of authority and superiority.Fifth, we will present you the situational and the dispositional approach to the personality. We will look at the ideas and views of Gordon Allport, Hans Eysenck, Kurt Lewin, Raymond Bernard Cattell and Walter Mischel. We will introduce the idea of features and dispositions. We will also look at the main criticisms of the two approaches to explaining the person.ABOUT THE AUTHORValentin Boyadzhiev is a trained nutritionist, graduated Master of Psychology in "Psychology and Psychopathology of Development".
