• Unit 6: Personality

    In the last unit, you learned about several theories of human development. However, these did not speak about our long-term traits, or the characteristics that make us unique human beings. In this unit, we will focus on personality psychology, which is the study of how our personalities develop and how they are shaped by our experiences and circumstances. We'll examine some of the development theories a bit deeper and also look at how psychologists assess personality traits. 

    Completing this unit should take you approximately 5 hours.
