Consider two brothers. One of these siblings will grow up to become a world leader. The other will struggle with alcohol and drugs, eventually spending time in jail. What about each of their personalities propelled them to take the path they did?

On this course, you’ll examine the factors that influence something as complex as your personality. You will explore the work of Freud on the psychodynamic perspective of personality, and consider theories of behaviourism, humanism and personality traits, considering how personality is influenced by the culture of the society in which you were raised.

You will also investigate models, theories and approaches of pioneers who contributed to our understanding of personality before examining personality tests to determine how they can be used to better understand our decision making process.

This online course is designed to give participants a solid understanding of what personality is, the methods used to study it and how our knowledge about personality has evolved over time. You will also learn about major theories of personality as well as how those theories have shaped the research agenda in the field.

This e-course is suitable for anyone who wants to learn more about some basics concepts and ideas in this area of psychology, including students considering advanced study and professionals interested in keeping up-to-date on new findings and developments within the field.
