Description

The respected and recognized best seller in the market, Jerry Burger's PERSONALITY is a solid mid-level book that fuses the theory-based approach to personality with the research-based approach to give students a comprehensive view of the field. For each major theoretical approach to personality, Burger pairs "theory, application, and assessment" chapters with chapters covering relevant programs of research. Biographical sketches of theorists and accounts of the stories behind influential research programs help students understand how classic and contemporary findings relate to each other, and reinforce the connection between theory and research. Personality scales throughout the book promote students' hands-on interaction with the material.
