Thanks for the Personality Book  May 29, 2011
by


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 idea that theory and research perpetuate one another. I'm currently using it on one of my Psychology courses in college and I'm very happy with it! Recommended.






Personality: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

This proven text fuses the best of theory-based and research-based instruction to give you a powerful introduction to personality that is accessible and understandable. Burger pairs "theory, applications, and assessment" chapters with chapters that describe the research programs aligned with every major theoretical approach.

Biographical sketches of theorists and accounts of the stories behind influential research programs help you gain an understanding of how classic and contemporary findings relate to each other, and reinforce the idea that theory and research perpetuate one another. In-text self-assessments and a Study Guide (available separately) allow you to stop, consider what you're reading, and interact with the material.

Burger's integrated approach pairs Theory chapters with companion chapters on relevant research for each theoretical perspective. The structure of the book is designed to demonstrate how the classic theories drive research and that the relevant research findings often shape the development and acceptance of new theories.
