Section Information for Fall 2021

This is a course in contemporary personality theory and research. This is a fascinating time to be studying personality research. After a low point in the 1960s and 1970s, the last several decades have witnessed an explosion of research on individual traits and dispositions in a number of fields within scientific psychology. A basic understanding of the research on personality traits in everyday life is central to the pursuit of knowledge in all fields within psychology, including developmental, social, evolutionary, clinical, and industrial-organizational psychology.
