Objective: Critique various factors that contribute to personality development.
You may have already made a previous assumption that personality formation is not a complex process. Many of you may feel that we are born with our personalities, and to a certain degree, that perspective is valid. However, personality formation is birthed from both nature and nurture. The complex interplay of genetics and experience shapes personality. As you read Chapter 15, you will learn more about the many factors that shape personality development.
Before we move into personality theories, you need a basic understanding of the many factors and influences that mold personality.
Read Chapter 15: Personality in Perspective.
