Study Resources for the Personality Unit

As the results from Friday's quiz illustrated, this unit can be a challenging one for students. It's not enough just to know vocabulary, or to have a vague sense of the unit's concepts/research. You'll need to be able to distinguish between different major theoretical approaches to personality and to articulate their advantages and disadvantages.

If that seems daunting, don't forget that we still have one week to go (test on Monday, Feb 29). And, we have a scheduled study session on Sunday, Feb 28 at 5:00 PM.

When I've finished this unit's slides, I'll post them here (still a work in progress). I'll also post any resources we use at the study session (as it approaches). However, especially if the quiz was a rough one for you, it might be a good idea to check out some of these things:

       Missed class? Can't make sense of a specific personality theory? Maybe the nice folks at Crash Course can help. This first video addresses some of the more "historic" theories of personality (Psychoanalytic, Psychodynamic, and Humanistic): 
      Trait Theory and Social-Cognitive Perspectives are addressed here:
