Description - Personality by Cary L. Cooper
Almost everything we do as humans is influenced by our personalities. The study of personalities has been a topic of great interest and debate from the earliest psychologists to present day researchers who specialise in applications of personality theory in the education and business worlds. This set of critical readings in personality theory brings together all the major contributions in the field. All the classical papers on the critical theories of personality are included, as well as more contemporary work on cross-cultural and social approaches. With an emphasis throughout on looking at the major issues in personality work, key topics covered include: * how personality is defined * how personality can be measured * how different personalities interact * how personality work should be conducted * how personality is applied in education, business and clinical settings Central issues associated with personality, such as assessment, and topics allied to personality, such as motivation, nature versus nurture, expectancies and attributions, and the self are also addressed.
Presenting the most significant contributions of the last century in one set of volumes, this seminal collection will be an invaluable resource for students, researchers and practitioners in psychology, as well as those from other areas such as business who wish to know more about personality theory.
