Bring theory into practice with illustrative biographies, clear explanations, and the most current research

Theories of Personality provides an overview of major classic and current theories of personality, brings theories to life through the interpretation of illustrative biographies, and integrates a clear explanation of theory with the latest research. In the 7th Edition, you’ll find updated literature throughout, as well as timely discussions on interesting topics such as Jung’s theory, bullying, epigenetics, and more. Author Susan Cloninger encourages students to think critically, and to see how understanding other people can bring both academic and practical benefits to our lives
