Filled with updated research and findings, the tenth edition of Schultz and Schultz’s THEORIES OF PERSONALITY gives you a clear and cogent introduction to this dynamic field. Organized by theory, this popular text discusses major theorists who represent psychoanalytic, neopsychoanalytic, lifespan, trait, humanistic, cognitive, behavioral, and social-learning approaches, while demonstrating the influence of events in theorists’ personal and professional lives on the development of these theories. The book also explores the ways in which race, gender, and cultural issues play a part in the study of personality and in personality assessment, and includes numerous examples, tables, and figures that further enhance your understanding of the content. The final chapter, “Personality in Perspective,” integrates topics explored in previous chapters and suggests conclusions that can be drawn from the many theorists’ work.

I ordered this textbook for my Personality Theory psychology course. I bought it used in fantastic condition, its like new. I like the fact that each chapter focuses on a personality theory looking at the theorists life, theory, assessments or measurements, and scientific validation of theory and evidence of theory. It came well before the expected delivery date, in fantastic condition for the price of a used textbook. The textbook also is organized and written in a clear easy way to read. This is a larger textbook, which should be taken into consideration. This textbook is definitely for the higher level psychology classes, however a rudimentary general psychology course should be taken before buying this textbook. A good general psychology textbook like the one by Ciccerelli which has its own study guide to accompany it. Definitely buy this textbook for a personality upper level psychology class. It’s well organized and easy to read, using classic experiments to convey concepts.
