PSYCH 215-CN : Psychology of Personality


In this course, we will explore personality psychology broadly. In lay terms, personality psychology explores deep questions of who we are, and why we think, feel, and behave as we do. We will discuss the tools for studying personality (including research methods and measurement design), and we will consider personality itself from the perspective of the various frameworks through which it is studied. These approaches each take a different focus, such as identifying specific personality traits or types, investigating how personality develops, and the roles of culture, biology, and even potential influences on personality that operate below awareness. Beyond simply building an understanding of these topics, this course also addresses their applications toward gaining better insight into ourselves and others, and how to utilize the course content as it pertains to various career paths. Carries social science credit. Prerequisite: PSYCH 110 or equivalent.
