Sharpened by thorough revisions, Theories of Personality by Jess and Gregory Feist remains one of the most comprehensive introductory texts in this niche. It explains how personality theories are actually mirrors of unique experiences, cultural backgrounds, and even the professional training and depth of knowledge of their proprietors. The book introduces students to psychodynamic theories, humanistic or existential theories, dispositional theories, and learning theories. Each chapter provides a background of the theorist/s, related researches, and real-life applications as well. The authors examine the practicality or usefulness of the theory discussed, and then evaluate its contributions to research and other fields of study (like art, religion, psychotherapy, etc.) The book is peppered with handy learning tools, including general overviews of each chapter, key concepts and terms, as well as a glossary. Illustrations and photos (in black and white) also add interest and help engage students. The latest edition of Theories of Personality (ISBN 9780073382708) by Jess and Gregory Feist has been carefully reorganized and reviewed to reflect the latest research in the field. It is an excellent reference for researchers who want an in-depth look at Freud's Psychoanalysis, Adler's Individual Psychology, and Jung's Analytical Psychology, Maslow's Holistic-Dynamic Theory, Rogers' Person-Centered Theory, and May's Existential Psychology. Two dispositional theories are also discussed, including Psychology of the Individual by Allport, and Factor and Trait Theories by McCrae, Costa, and Eysenck. Authors Jess and Gregory Feist also provide a critical examination of Skinner's Behavioral Analysis, Bandura's Social Cognitive Theory, Kelly's Psychology of Personal Constructs, and Rotter and Mischel's Cognitive Social Learning Theory. This book was written for students taking up courses in psychology, education, social sciences, communication arts, and the humanities.
