In Personality: Theory and Research, 10th Edition the overall format of the text remains the same. The ordering of chapters, integrating theory with research, has been retained. The text aims to introduce the primary theoretical perspectives that guide contemporary research on personality and individual differences, while reviewing a wide range of contemporary scientific findings on personality. Throughout the text, emphasis is placed on how theory and research inform one another. Rich case material shows how the theoretical conceptions yield insight into the lives of individual persons. In keeping with the long tradition of this text, the new edition treats each theoretical approach objectively and even-handedly, encouraging readers to weigh the evidence and to formulate their own conclusions.
