Overview

The diversity of approaches to personality research makes the integration of the latest findings a challenging goal. In the first volume of the series, the editors and contributors offer their view of the field of personality as an integrative discipline. They propose that personality may be studied either in terms of distinctive characteristic behavior patterns or psychological processes-but analyzed within an integrated and unifying framework. Initial chapters address general issues, especially the relationship between biological and personality variables. Subsequent chapters cover traits of personality and behavior on a variety of levels, including the processes of attention and memory, processes of inferences, and complex social behavior. The book presents theoretical and empirical evidence on neural reactivity and its relation to individual differences in personality, and explores the connection between the biological mechanisms of personality with cognitive, affective, and social systems of individual functioning. "It is my firm conviction that this volume . . . is a stimulating book that represents an important contribution to the field. Therefore it gives me great pleasure to recommend this volume to fellow researchers, teachers, and students as an advanced text in courses on personality and social psychology." From the Foreword by Andrzej Eliasz, Rector, Warsaw School of Social Sciences and Humanities From the reviews "[T]his book offers a good mix of philosophical chapters on the biology of personality and some interesting chapters on intra- and inter-individual differences in some classic social psychological constructs." Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic in Personality and Individual Differences "Novel ideas that interface the fields of neuroscience, neuropsychology, and cognitive science with the traditional areas of personality theory and assessment. Groundbreaking and engaging. This volume will be of value to scientists and practitioners interested in broadening their paradigms for understanding personality, mind, and brain." Antonio E. Puente, University of North Carolina-Wilmington
