The book provides students with supporting and contradictory evidence for the development of personality theories through time. Without condemning the founding theorists who came before him, Ellis builds on more than a century of psychological research to re-examine the theories of Freud, Jung, and Adler while taking an equally critical look at modern, research-based theories, including his own.

📝Jung s Personality Theory Quantified Book Synopsis : Jung's Personality Theory Quantified fills an urgent need for professionals using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI) to map it on to the cognitive modes of Jung’s personality theory, avoiding potential logical errors in the traditional “type dynamics” method. It furthers Jung’s original concepts while placing them on a solid axiomatic basis not possessed by other personality theories. Bringing these quantitative findings to the millions of MBTI users – managers, consultants, counsellors, teachers, psychoanalysts and human resource professionals – will require further education of those already certified to administer the instrument according to type dynamics. For this reason numerical exercises follow most chapters to make the book a source reference for briefer workbooks usable in enhanced certification programs. Backed by quantitative theory and new graphical methods, the pioneering qualitative typology work of Myers and Briggs is thus extended to yield deeper understanding of the vital topics of human personality, creativity and human relations. Jungian psychoanalysts may find Jung's Personality Theory Quantified helpful in organizing complicated clinical information and it can also enhance the work of MBTI practitioners worldwide.

đź“ťThe 3M Model of Motivation and Personality Book Synopsis : Integrating control theory, evolutionary psychology, and a hierarchical approach to personality, this book presents a new approach to motivation, personality, and consumer behavior. Called the 3M, which stands for `Meta-theoretic Model of Motivation', this theory seeks to account for how personality traits interact with the situation to influence consumer attitudes and actions. The book proposes that multiple personality traits combine to form a motivational network that acts to influence behavior. Mowen argues that in order to understand the causes of enduring behavioral tendencies, one must identify the more abstract traits underlying surface behaviors. In constructing the 3M model, the author reports data from fifteen empirical studies employing over 3500 respondents. In this hierarchical model, four types of personality traits are identified: elemental, compound, situational, and surface traits. Eight elemental traits are proposed as forming the underlying dimensions of personality. Consistent with control theory, the research reveals that the elemental traits combine to form compound traits, such as self-efficacy, task orientation, playfulness, and competitiveness. These elemental and compound traits combine with situational influences to cause enduring behavioral tendencies within general situational contexts. Examples of situational traits investigated include impulsive buying, value consciousness, sports interest, and health motivation. In the 3M model the elemental, compound, and situational traits combine to yield surface traits, which are enduring dispositions to act in specific behavioral contexts. Five surface traits are empirically investigated in the book: compulsive buying, sports participation, healthy diet lifestyles, proneness to bargaining, and a tendency to frugality. Across these five studies, the empirical results reveal that the 3M model accounts for over 44% of the variance in the surface trait measures. By presenting a new meta-theory of motivation and personality that is testable, Mowen's 3M model accounts for high levels of variance in consumer behavior. By integrating the work of selected past and current theorists into a comprehensible whole, the 3M model provides coherence in a field currently dominated by conflicting ideas, theories, and approaches. The book provides evidence that by understanding the individual dispositions that underlie consumer behavior, public policy officials and marketing specialists can develop better communication programs to influence and persuade their target audiences. The book shows how to employ the 3M model to segment the marketplace, provide psychographic inventories, position brands, create promotional themes, and develop brand personalities.

đź“ťA Theory of Personality Development Book Synopsis : With characteristic humility Luciano L'Abate has entitled this groundbreaking volume simply A Theory of Personality Development. But the theories put forth in these pages are anything but humble, representing, as they do, a radical departure from tradition. Unlike traditional theories of personality which have tended to be somewhat metaphysical, seeking to understand personality in a vacuum, Dr. L'Abate's theory is firmly rooted in the social and existential exigencies of everyday life as experienced within the five fundamental contexts of home, work, leisure, the marketplace (grocery shopping, barbershops, malls, etc.), and in transit. At the heart of the theory is the conviction that the ability to love and to negotiate are the sine qua non of personal competence, with the family as the major determinant of both. Balancing a keen sense of humanity with unwavering scientific rigor, Dr. L'Abate replaces many of the shopworn abstractions of traditional personality theory with concepts rooted in the fluid realities of family and social interaction. For instance, in place of self-esteem, which is a nonrelational and intrapsychic concept, are factors such as the attribution of importance to self and selected others and the ability to experience intimacy. He also integrates many social psychological models, such as social comparison, resource exchange, and ecological theories within a developmental, contextual framework. Since, in Dr. L'Abate's theory, personality development is viewed as the interplay of fundamental abilities in basic relative settings, the differences between personality function and dysfunction become more easily distinguishable. Hence, while previous theories sawpersonality development as separate or distinct from psychopathology this theory shows how normal development and deviance are corollaries and extensions of one another. In addition, Dr. L'Abate illustrates how, in light of the theory outlined in this book, humanistic and behavioral approaches to personality are quite compatible both conceptually and methodologically. Offering much more than just a novel twist on traditional psychological theory, A Theory of Personality Development propounds a revolutionary new approach to the understanding of personality and personality development. As such, it is essential reading for personality researchers, students, and all psychologists in clinical, developmental, abnormal, and social psychology.
