The discipline of personality psychology can be viewed as responsible for explaining how a persons major psychological subsystems -- motives, emotion, cognition, self, and more -- work together. Today personality psychology is undergoing a renaissance in which new research and theory is emerging. This textbook helps students keep up with those emerging trends. Personality: A Systems Approach employs a new organization that integrates the best intellectual traditions within Personality Psychology. Over its four parts, the book examines what personality is, what personalitys major subsystems (e.g., motives, the self) are, how personalitys parts are organized, and how personality develops. Students will finish the course with an understanding of how personality systems work together and how personality develops from birth to the conclusion of life.
