In this class we have covered six different theories of personality. No single psychological model is sufficient to capture the complexity of the human experience. But by looking at an individual through multiple theoretical lens we are more likely to get closer to an accurate and complete picture of them.
Please tell me about the personality of a public figure who interests you. It can be a well-known celebrity or a lower profile individual who is in the public eye. They can be alive or dead. Make sure that there is enough reliable biographical information out there that you can access about them. Pick someone whom you can honestly reflect on both their shadow and bright sides.
Then use three personality models to differentially describe them. We have covered an abundance of material from the psychoanalytic/psychodynamic perspective so I would like you to use that approach plus two others of your choosing. You might be interested in explaining the success of your favorite athlete from a psychodynamic view, a trait view, and a behaviorist/social learning view. Or you may be curious to explore the rise and fall of a musician from a psychodynamic, a biological, and a humanistic perspective.
—>The point of this paper is to examine an individual from three different angles. Be sure to contrast and compare the explanations of each of the three approaches you select with respect to the person you have chosen.
Below is a list of the six different approaches to personality we covered this semester, as well as related terms and persons:
1) Psychoanalytic/Psychodynamic: unconscious mind, defense mechanisms, inferiority complex, shadow, archetype, attachment style; Freud, Adler, Jung, Erikson, Horney
2) Trait Theory: Big 5, OCEAN, need for achievement, Type A & B personalities; Raymond Cattell; Henry Murray
3) Biological Approach: behavioral approach system, behavioral inhibition system, genetics, temperament, twin studies; Hans Eysenck
4) Humanistic Approach: empathy, positive regard, congruence, hierarchy of needs, self-actualization, self-disclosure; C. Rogers, A. Maslow
5) Behavioral: classical conditioning, operant conditioning, reinforcement, punishment, stimulus, response; John Watson, B.F. Skinner
/Social Learning: reciprocal determinism, observational learning, self-efficacy, locus of control; Julian Rotter, Albert Bandura
6) Cognitive: personal construct, self-schema, possible selves, cognitive distortions; George Kelley, Aaron Beck
This is not an exhaustive list of the concepts related to each of the different personality theories. Please incorporate more terminology from the lectures and readings. The “Key Terms” section at the end of each chapter is a rich source of language to use. Please don’t simply define and explain to me what this jargon means as I have already done for you in my slides and lectures. Instead, show me that you understand these concepts now by using them accurately and descriptively in your psychobiography. For example, if you think your person is very “conscientious,” you would want to describe them using that word and give examples of how they have been task-oriented, organized, or diligent in their life. DO NOT INCLUDE THE MBTI OR ENNEAGRAM IN YOUR PAPER AS WE HAVE ALREADY DEEPLY EXPLORED THEM AND THEY ARE NOT COVERED BY YOUR TEXTBOOK.
Your paper should be 3-4 typed pages with size 12 point font. An A for this assignment will describe the individual in enough detail that I can understand your personality analysis. It will describe how each of the three personality theories that you choose helps you understand this individual’s character and behavior. There will be a comparing and contrasting of the three different personality approaches with respect to how they explain your celebrity. You will also tell me which theoretical domain you believe best captures this person’s personality and why (no wrong answers here). Lastly, your paper will have a logical flow and organization with paragraph indentations. Please don’t simply follow this rubric’s ordering as an outline.
