Written for psychology majors but accessible to non-majors, Theories of Personality, Ninth Edition (ISBN 9780495506256) is suitable for introductory level courses. It offers a bird's eye view of the different theories that affect the personality and how other factors (such as cultural uses, gender, and race) influence it. The textbook offers 21 personality theories in relation to contemporary interest, encouraging students and to incorporate what they learn to everyday living. Authors Duane P. Schultz and Sydney Ellen Schultz start off by discussing Sigmund Freud's psychoanalysis. They also cover analytical psychology by Carl Jung, individual psychology by Alfred Adler, neurotic needs and trends by Karen Horney, personology by Henry Murray, identity theory by Erik Erikson, and Gordon Allport's motivation and psychology. Topics such as needs-hierarchy theory of Abraham Maslow, self-actualization theory by Carl Rogers, personal construct theory by George Kelly, reinforcement theory by B.F. Skinner, and modeling theory by Albert Bandura are also discussed. Students will be able to read up in the facets of personality and other trait theorists such as Raymond Cattell and Hans Eysenck. Schultz and Schultz use an engaging writing style; they integrate biographical materials to help students make connections between personality theories and actual life experiences. For each chapter, there are summaries and outlines as well as key terms and critical-thinking review questions. Theories of Personality, Ninth Edition has been updated with new features, including a new section on ethnicity, culture, and gender. All chapters have been thoroughly revised for accuracy, and new references are also offered.
