From distinguished scholar and teacher Jerry S. Wiggins, this book is a uniquely integrative introduction to adult personality assessment that will engage graduate and undergraduate students alike. Part I thoroughly reviews five major assessment paradigms--psychodynamic, interpersonal, personological, multivariate, and empirical. In Part II, leading representatives of each paradigm are invited to interpret extensive test and interview data collected from a single subject. The resulting "collaborative case study" facilitates comparison of techniques, theories, and interpretations; illuminates the unique contributions of each paradigm; and suggests areas of common ground and potential integration.
