By uniquely organizing coverage into six domains of personality functioning (dispositional, intrapsychic, biological, cognitive/experiential, social and cultural, and the adjustment domain) Personality Psychology interweaves contemporary research with classic and modern theories within the context of each of the domains. This unique framework encourages students to view the "whole person" as the sum of influences and effects of each of the domains of personality functioning. The Second Edition of this unique text includes a restructured chapter order as well as the latest research. The newest and most unique option for a personality course, this text brings the subject to life with a vivid, colorful layout - the first personality textbook to incorporate a four-color design.
