Day 8: Personality
January 22, 2008 by Dr. Ken Tangen
Personality is the study of what makes you you. It is one of the oldest areas of psychology, and includes many ideas borrowed from philosophy, wisdom, literature, and cultural traditions.
Approaches include trait theory, psychoanalysis, behaviorism, neofreudian, humanistic and cognitive explanations. Topics include values, schemas, structures, and the influence of heredity and learning.
