Prepping for Your Personality Unit Test

Okay, that went fast. On Tuesday, you'll be taking your unit test on Personality Theories. As a warning, this can be a tricky unit for students. Part of the challenge is simply mastering the vocabulary, but this unit has the additional obstacle of having to know which vocabulary and core ideas go with each of five approaches that you learned about in class. For example, it is important to know what the MMPI-2 is, but it is just as important to know that the MMPI-2 is based on Trait Theory (and, thus, would not be the first assessment tool of choice for a psychoanalyst or a humanistic psychotherapist).

So, as always, I've got some things tools to help you out. In addition to the printed study guide you got in class, you might want to try out these:

Quizlet Flashcards

Class Notes: This is the slide show we have used for this unit (or, at least, its present incarnation). If you were absent on Friday because of the Blood Drive (or anything else), it may be helpful to know that we got through Slide 34. We will be learning about the last perspective, Social Cognitive, tomorrow in class.
