Course DescriptionPersonality psychology, in contrast to abnormal and clinical psychology, is the study of normal and exceptional personalities, their assessment and development, and the processes that define them. Personality psychologists have been influenced by the “grand” theories of personality that tend to have more historical significance than relevance for current personality theories and research. Contemporary personality theories are more specific but still fall under broad paradigms or approaches. Research some of these approaches, including trait, biological, psychodynamic, phenomenological, behavioral and learning, and social-cognitive theories.
