Psychology of Personality: Viewpoints, Research, and Applications introduces students to many important figures in the field, including Freud, Jung, Adler, Horney, Erikson, Maslow, Allport, Cattell, Bandura, Mischel, and others. The book not only covers classic issues and research in personality, but also looks at genetics and personality, neurological considerations in personality, the evolutionary perspective, the Big Five model of personality, and other contemporary issues. The 3rd Edition reflects significant changes in the field but retains much of the information and special features that made it a textbook from which instructors found it easy to teach and students found it easy to learn.
