The Person: An Introduction to Personality Psychology, 6th Edition presents the most up-to-date research, theory, and methods in the field of personality psychology. This exciting new edition has been completely revised and largely reworked to speak directly to the student in an engaging narrative tone while also retaining the cutting-edge research sensibilities that has made it an enduring success and a revolutionary text in the field. The 6th Edition introduces new chapters on intelligence and cognitive ability, psychopathology, and the correlative relationship between personality and health. It is filled with new material throughout, such as case studies of prominent figures - including Marilyn Monroe, Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs, and many others -which illustrate important ideas in personality psychology and provoke discussion.
