Personality Theories: A Scientific Approach examines classic and contemporary theories of personality and their applicability to the present day. Written with a focus on “how we know what we know” and the importance of critical thinking, the text encourages learners to apply abstract theories to the modern world through investigation and analysis of research studies. The author helps students navigate the latest techniques in studying personality theory by emphasizing assessment associated with each theory, and devotes an entire chapter linking personality theory and assessment with psychopathology.
