Overview

For courses in Personality Psychology

A modern approach to personality that harnesses students’ curiosity about themselves and their peers
Revel™ Personality Psychology: Understanding Yourself and Others
presents an up-to-date overview of arguably the most interesting and relevant subfield in psychology for today’s undergraduate students. Committed to teaching students about personality psychology as well as about life itself, authors Jean Twenge and W. Keith Campbell address students’ most pressing questions about friendship, relationships, health, happiness, and more. Designed to appeal to today’s students — who are enmeshed in social media — the 2nd Edition offers coverage of contemporary topics of interest, such as how the “Big Five” personality traits relate to digital communication and the impact of partner personality traits on relationship satisfaction.
