This introduction to the study of personality makes current research topics accessible to undergraduate juniors and seniors while also covering fundamental concepts, theories, and methodologies. The 18 chapters cover personality measurement, genetic and environmental influences, biological perspectives, development, motives, personality structure, the unconscious, self-concept and identity, self-awareness and self- consciousness, control, sex and gender, emotions, moral character, culture, stress, relationships, and disorders. Each chapter includes an outline and summary as well as activity boxes and discussion questions. The textbook would also be useful for a graduate course on empirical research in personality.
