Personality has often been defined as the collection of attitudes, emotions, feelings, and behaviours that distinguishes one individual from another over time and different situations. It is clear that the behaviours, abilities, and attitudes of our friends and families are not only similar to ours but also different. This course examines the concept of personality, and compares different theoretical approaches (ranging from Freud to Eysenck) that attempt to explain differences in personality and abilities. The course will allow students to gain insight into how personality may be subjectively and objectively measured. The course will provide both theoretical and practical insights into personality and individual differences.
