What are the Different Types of Personality Theories? How this occurs, and how the resulting personality can best be described, has been the subject of many theories.
Most personality theories can be grouped into one of four classes: They also differ in the methods they use to assess or measure personality.
Traits are dimensions or scales on the basis of which a personality is described. Psychologists working in the area of trait theory are concerned with 1 determining the basic traits that provide a meaningful description of personality and, 2 finding some way to measure them.
What are the basic traits? Thousands of words in the English language refer to characteristics of behaviour. How do we reduce them to a small number of meaningful traits?
One approach uses factor analysis. Factor analysis is a complex statistical technique to be discussed more fully in the next chapter for reducing a large number of measures or a smaller number of independent dimensions.
With this technique several hundred test responses might be reduced to a few underlying dimensions of factors that account for all of the response data. Personality traits can be assessed by two miethods: With the first method a personality inventory is most often used, whereas the second usually involves a rating scale.
Some examples of rating scales: Does the individual antagonize others? Considers himself incapable of much success Does the individual Needs much dual need constant prodding in doing prodding of ordinary proceed with his assignments work without being told?
Psychoanalytic theory approaches personality from a viewpoint that is very different from that of trait theory.
Trait theorists try to find the stable dimensions of personality by studying groups of people, and much of their data is derived from self-reports-what the individual says about himself.
In contrast, phsychoanalytic theory is based on the in-depth study of individual personalities. And because motivation is believed to be unconscious, self-reports are, not neccessarily considered accurate.
The Interpretation of Dreams, published into Outline of Psychoanalysis, published posthumously ina year after his death. Freud compared the human mind to an iceberg; the small part that shows on the surface of the water represents conscious experience, while the much larger mass below water level represents the unconscious-a storehouse of impulses, passions, and primitive instincts that affect our thoughts and behaviour.
It was this unconscious portion of the mind that Freud sought to explore, and he did so by the method of free association. The method requires that the person talk about everything that comes into the conscious mind, no matter how ridiculous or trivial it might seem.
By analysing free associations, including the recall of dreams and early childhood memories, Freud sought to puzzle out the basic determinants of personality.
The social learning approach to motivation focuses on the patterns of behaviour the individual learns in coping with environment. Within this viewpoint, individual differences in behaviour result from variations in the conditions of learning that the person encounters in the course of growing up.
Some behaviour patterns are learned through direct experience; the individual behaves in a certain manner and is rewarded or punished.Cross-cultural psychology is the scientific study of human behavior and mental processes, including both their variability and invariance, under diverse cultural conditions.
Through expanding research methodologies to recognize cultural variance in behavior, language, and meaning it seeks to extend and develop psychology.
