Awesome Book!

I am using this book for my personality psychology class and it is great! The book gives you an insight about how personality can be seen. It is a whole new different view than I thought it would be and I recommend this book to those who want to know more and have a better understanding of "The Person".

Amazon Books

This book was listed as in good condition and it came looking pretty much new. It shipped in a timely manner, got to me before class and was about 60% cheaper than the price at the school bookstore. Thanks!

A life saver

The Person: A New Introduction to Personality Psychology This book was purchased to assist in a psychology class. It has been a life saver. Ideas and concepts are clear, graphs are so easy to follow. Has been by far one of the best educational tools I've purchased yet.

An insightful, interesting and comprehensive book

Personality psychology is a unique subject dealing with individual differences in people, and this book does a superb job of addressing this topic. What I like most about this book is that it covers all the important and renowned theories in this field, such as Costa and McCrae's Big Five traits, Freud's idea of defense mechanisms, Maslow's hierarchy of needs, Bandura's observational learning, Erikson's stages of psychosocial development and Bowlby's attachment styles among others. These concepts may be seemingly diverse and unrelated, but McAdams manages to integrate them very well using his idea of three different levels of personality: forming an outline with traits, knowing some of the person's details through motivational, cognitive and developmental concerns and finally constructing an individual's life stories. All the concepts fit marvellously well within this framework. In addition to the clear and concise writing, interesting and revelant narratives, anecdotes and examples are included. Moreover, within each chapter and at the end of each chapter, the important ideas and concepts are re-iterated and summarized. Indeed, this book leaves the reader much more enriched and knowledgeable about ourselves and the people in our lives.
