A shared assumption among personality psychologists is that each person possesses a personality--i.e., characteristic ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving--that uniquely distinguishes him or her from other people. Each individual's personality is the culmination of his or her genetic makeup, biology, early life experiences, learning and culture. In this undergraduate-level course, we will review the major theories and research paradigms (e.g., trait, biological, cognitive) of modern-day personality psychology. The course will emphasize contemporary research, theory, and methodology, as well as provide a review of historical accounts that have significantly contributed to current conceptualizations.

When Offered Fall.
