Explore personality with the theorists

An Introduction to Theories of Personality uses a unique theorist-by-theorist approach in introducing the basics of personality theory, ranging from Freud and other personality theory pioneers to modern theorists. Both the theorists and their theories are discussed — supported by a wealth of primary sources, biographical information, and additional research — in a way that urges students to consider not only psychology as a field but their own lives and relationships. The 9th Edition has been thoroughly updated; changes include chapter revisions and reorganizations based on student input, updated chapter introductions and Questions for Discussions, and more.
