The examination of personality and individual differences is a major field of research in the modern discipline of psychology. Concerned with the ways humans develop an organised set of characteristics to shape themselves and the world around them, it is a study of how people come to be ‘different' and ‘similar' to others, on both an individual and a cultural level. This volume explores the scientific foundations of personality and individual differences, in chapters arranged across three thematic sections:Part 1: Theoretical Perspectives on Personality and Individual DifferencesPart 2: Research Strategies for Studying Personality and Individual DifferencesPart 3: The Measurement of Personality and Individual DifferencesWith outstanding contributions from leading scholars across the world, this is an invaluable resource for researchers and graduate students.
