About this Unit
Most of us probably use the term ‘personality’ almost every day. Yet the conceptualisation and definition of personality is far from settled. This unit introduces the controversies and debates in the psychology of personality, as well as the major theoretical and applied approaches to its measurement. Emphasis is placed on an understanding of personality research and its implications for the practice of psychology.
