For each school of thought (Freudian, neo- Freudian, trait, biological, humanistic, behavioral/social learning, and cognitive), a chapter on "Theory, Application, and Assessment" is followed by a chapter on "Relevant Research" to illu ...more

Bitirdiğim sayılı ders kitaplarından vuhuu. Kaynak kitap-ders kitabı dediğin böyle olur ! (Yayınevi ya da yazarla anlaşmadım ya da reklam sponsorluğum yoktur.) Ey psikolog adayı ya da psikoloji merak salmış genç insan kişiliğini merak ediyorum neden böyleyim neden böyleler çözmek anlamak istiyorum bunların cevabını bulmak istersen nah bulursun ama bu kitap cevabı olmayan soruna şifreler, sırlar verecek ! Belki de bunun cevabını sen bulacaksın ( Hava gazı). Kaynak kitap dediğin niye böyle olur. V ...more

This was an enlightening and fascinating read. Burger gives an overview of the field of personality psychology by looking at how the different schools (what he calls "approaches") of psychological thought understand and explain personality:

1. Psychoanalytic approach (Freudian and Neo-Freudian): our personality is made up of our unconscious drives, urges, and neuroses
2. Trait approach: our personality is the sum of our consistent behaviors and characteristics
3. Biological approach: our personali

Uzun, altı çizilerek, tekrar edilerek yani sindirilerek yapılan bir okuma sonrası ilk hissettiğim, bu bir başucu kitabı bana göre (Psikoloji ile ilişkim tamamiyle amatör bu arada). Zira Freud okumuş olabilirsiniz ya da Maslow belki Allport ve hatta tümünü. Ama şimdiye dek okuduğum her kuramı incelerken doğrusu o sandım, büyük bir şemsiyenin altında hepsi ayrı bir koruma sağlıyormuş meğer. Dili çok anlaşılır, akıcı ve her teoremi çalışma ve referanslarıyla aktarırken tez ve antitez’ini de sonunda ...more

Probably one of the better psychology textbooks I have read which doesn't say very much as a general rule. What I did like about the book is all the little boxes about the individual famous names in psychology who almost none of them intended to be psychologists and got into it later in life.

Okunması kolay bir kitap. Kişilik ve kişilik ile ilgili kavramları tarihte psikoloji dalında isim yapmış kişiler üzerinden anlatıyor. Hemen hepsinin sunmuş olduğu kuramlar, yöntemler, güçlü ve eleştirilen yönleri ile anlatılmış.

I think this is one of the first full text books I’ve actually completed and I have to say, it actually wasn’t too terrible. The subject material is interesting and the author presents everything quite well.

Personality, as you might have guessed, is a book about personality psychology, a branch of psychology that studies human personality and how it varies between individuals. This book was actually pretty well rounded, covering multiple approaches to personality theory. The first few chapters s

I really enjoyed Burger's perspective and research. I am very happy that I read this whole book from front to back. I have learned a lot from reading this text and was able to provide great explanations to the questions that my professor asked.

Atıp tutmanın çok tatlı ve kolay olduğu sosyal bilimlerde her verdiği bilgiye kaynak göstererek güvenilirliğini tanıtlıyor, ayrıca araştırmacı okuyuculara kolaylık sağlıyor.

A decent introduction to personality in psychology but I would have preferred a deeper and less heterosexist and sexist dive.
