This course will familiarize students with a variety of personality theories, their history, their limitations and applications. We will consider theories that address personality development and implications for understanding others and enhancement of the self. In addition to examining the research methods used in empirical investigations of personality, we will cover several different theoretical approaches to or perspectives on the study of personality. The approaches (i.e., paradigms) we will consider include the dispositional, biological, psychoanalytic, Neo-analytic, learning, phenomenological, and cognitive self-regulation perspectives. This course will also cover current empirical investigations into the nature and function of personality, the influence of culture, the influence of personality on behavioral and mental health problems, and how the personality concepts described in the lectures and text may (or may not) be reflected in real world examples.

Hopefully, by the end of the term students will have the skills to (1) identify, describe, and compare/contrast the core theoretical approaches (i.e., paradigms) involved in the study of personality, (2) interpret, critically evaluate, and discuss scientific research on personality, (3) create new research questions in this area of research, (4) clearly and concisely communicate scientific results to others through summaries and literature reviews using APA-style, and (5) apply the findings from the personality literature to understanding experiences from your daily life, and in creating your own predictions about behavior
