Overview

An Introduction to Theories of Personality uses a theorist-by-theorist approach to introduce the basics of personality theory. With coverage ranging from Freud and other personality theory pioneers to modern theorists, the text provides an up-to-date overview of the full breadth of the discipline. The authors discuss both the theorists themselves and their theories in a way that prompts you to consider psychology's relevance to your own life and relationships.

The 9th Edition offers new coverage of fraternal birth order effect and the fluctuating asymmetry attraction cue, among other updated material. In addition, updated chapter introductions and questions for discussion reflect the latest in the field.
