Now published by SAGE!

In Personality, the historical underpinnings of core theories and research come alive through biographical and contextual illustrations. Author Jerry M. Burger, and new co-author Gretchen M. Reevy, use vivid stories and discussions to challenge learners to critically consider the discipline’s approach to diversity, research science, and its future as a holistic field of study. With a balance of both theory and research, along with application sections and personality tests, students gain hands-on experience and a comprehensive understanding of the subject matter. Every chapter in this Eleventh Edition has been thoroughly updated, such as sections on Extraversion-Introversion, Dream Interpretation, and Gender Roles, to reflect the most recent research. It also features 400 new references, a new research topic on Narcissism, and two new personality scales.

Key features
NEW TO THIS EDITION: 
  • The new edition is available as a digital option through SAGE Vantage, an intuitive digital platform that offers auto-graded assignments and interactive multimedia tools—all designed to enable students to better prepare for class. Learn more.
  • A new research topic, Narcissism, has been added to Chapter 8 replacing the focus on Emotion from the previous edition. This change represents a shift in the focus of personality researchers over the past several years and highlights a topic area that has been in all the major journals.
  • The section on Extraversion-Introversion (Chapter 10) has been completely restructured and includes a discussion of the different social lives of extraverts and introverts.
  • New author, Gretchen M. Reevy, brings expertise in stress and coping and provides a steady hand when it comes to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  • Two new personality scales have been added as well as a new social desirability measure where students can discover where they fall on each of the Big Five dimensions.
  • Students can take and score for themselves personality tests using 12 measures offered in the new Vantage courseware. This hands-on experience not only gives students a better idea of how personality assessment works, but often generates a little healthy skepticism about relying too heavily on such measures.
KEY FEATURES: 
  • The first textbook to blend both the best of theory-based and research-based instruction, Personality, Eleventh Edition provides students with the foundational aspects they need when it comes to understanding personality at its core.
  • The text’s foundational structure is designed to demonstrate that classic theories stimulate research and that research findings often shape the development and acceptance of the theories.
  • Grounded in the belief that students learn about research best by seeing programs of research rather than isolated examples, twenty-six research topics are covered in depth in the seven research chapters.
  • Each of the theory chapters contains a section on theory, a section on application and a section on assessment.
  • Biographies provide students with an overview of prominent personality theorists making the theory come alive.
