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
Brings personality theories to life with personality test exercises, news topics boxes, and boxes on key figures in the field. For each major theoretical approach, there is a chapter on theory, applications, and assessment, with an accompanying chapter on relevant research. Twenty-six research programs are covered in seven research chapters, illustrating research processes in the field. This fifth edition contains new material on research in gender and culture, defense mechanisms, and cognitive interpretation of Freudian concepts. The author teaches psychology at Santa Clara University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
