Overview

The respected and recognized best seller in the market, Jerry Burger's PERSONALITY is a solid mid-level resource that fuses the best of theory-based and research-based instruction to give students an illuminating introduction to the subject. Burger pairs theory, application, 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 students understand how classic and contemporary findings relate to each other, and reinforce the idea that theory and research perpetuate one another. Self-assessments promote students' interaction with the material.

  • An integrated approach pairs "theory, application, and assessment" chapters with companion chapters on relevant research for each theoretical perspective. The structure of the book is designed to demonstrate how theories drive research and how relevant research findings often shape the development and acceptance of new theories.
  • Research chapters are organized around 26 concepts often investigated by personality researchers, such as self-esteem, emotions, and temperament. By looking at programs of research rather than occasional examples, students see how researchers developed their initial hypotheses, and how experimental findings lead to new questions, refined hypotheses, and ultimately a greater understanding of the topic.
  • The text offers a thorough overview of all major theories of personality.
