Personality Theory

Thousands of philosophers, psychologist and psychiatrist have all expressed their individual concepts of personality. What is personality? How are personalities formed? How do scientists study personality? This paper will attempt to bring clarity to many of these issues. Different theorists have varying views on personality.

Each theory comes from a different expert in varying fields. Even within a single field there are plenty of experts whose perspectives differ even among one another. These dynamics point to the fact that each individual expert’s background in education, geography, culture, economic standing, gender, age and global exposure has tremendous bearing on their theory. With so many variables in play, a system had to be devised in order to serve as a bench mark or bed rock for comparing and contrasting the many different theories that exist on the subject of personality. This system that was created to align and evaluate all personality theories was created by way of a series of dimensions. Now every personality theory can be bench mark against these six different dimensions listed and explained below.

Determinism versus free choice test personality theory based on the concept that some psychologist say that behavior comes from outside influences, while other psychologist stat that behaviors come from internal influences. Those who believe that the environment, peers, conditions acting upon the body or any other external stimuli regulate behavior are determinist. Psychologists who believe that behavior is a function of the human will or a calculation of the human intellect are classified as free will. This is one way to help categorize any given theory on personality.

Pessimism versus optimism theories and personality will all eventually deal with the dynamic of motivation. Some explanations will be given as to what drives particular people to behave in certain ...

The first sight she saw was brick stacks that looked like slender broken towers, sticking up from the desert floor. They were leaning like drunken chimneys in different directions. Then an oasis of pine trees appeared in the landscape, and there the Paropamisus Mountains appeared and she knew that she was getting close to the Persian city. On the other side of the city Persian woul

    Jealousy Is The Ugliest Trait

    Is there sincere friendship between two women? There’s a quote from a Japanese drama I once watched when Saki (who does not trust anyone in her life) picked up a slice of ham and said before she put it in her mouth: “Women’s friendship is even thinner than a slice of ham.” Women as we say are “enemies” of each other since we were born, we always see our own kind as a threat, and we are unbelievably competitive, especially between appearance and guys. While men’s friendship are always simple and very long lasting, and men seem to be faithful to their friends all the time. In ‘Blue Beard’ by C

    After a star reaches a certain point, it’s easy to forget what they became famous for and concentrate solely on their persona. Madonna is such a star. Madonna rocketed to stardom so quickly in 1984 that it obscured most of her musical virtues. Appreciating her music became even more difficult as the decade wore on, as discussing her lifestyle became more common than discussing her music. However, one of Madonna’s greatest achievements is how she manipulated the media and the public with her music, her videos, her publicity, and her sexuality. Arguably, Madonna was the f

    In high school peer pressure is stronger than ever. Students are critically judged by their peers and are forced to either compromise one’s own moral values to fit into the group or face being ostracized and out casted. When I went to high school I was a year younger then everyone, due to the fact that I skipped a grade, this put an added pressure on my shoulders. I often felt I needed to rush maturity in order to be considered an equal. Students sometimes feel backed against a wall and following the group is sometimes easier than going against the grain. It all started a few years ago on a
