TEXT BOOK: Friedman & Schustack, Personality: Classic theories and modern research. Sixth edition. Pearson.


A common
application of personality theory is a case study of a single individual that
applies one or more theoretical views to understanding a person. A good case
study explains the causes of a person’s current behavior, makes predictions
about their future behavior, and provides the information required for
interventions designed to change the person. For example, a case study may be
used to assist psychotherapy, personnel decisions, legal decisions, educational
placements, etc.

For this
assignment, you will write a brief case study that addresses the issues

The case study should
be one page in which you apply some of the concepts from this unit to explain
the behavior of a person you know, or someone you know about (historic or
fictional characters are acceptable). This paragraph should:

1) Describe an
important example of the person’s attitudes or behavior, which defines his/her

2) Describe
exactly how certain concepts from one of the theories for this unit explain the
creation of the person’s attitudes and/or behavior described above.
Highlight the key terms for the concepts used in your explanation.

3) Based on
the concepts above, predict how the person’s attitudes and/or behavior will or
will not change over time, and explain your expectation.

4) Apply
research evidence to evaluate the strengths and/or weaknesses of the theory in
explaining the person’s attitudes or behavior. Cite and describe a
particular study from the text that provides scientific evidence, and explain
how it supports or refutes the explanation above. You may need to find a
study outside the text, such as those posted in some of the Canvas modules.

5) Describe
how the explanation of the case above differs from that of another theory
covered in another text chapter. Also, describe how the explanation is
similar to that of another theory in another chapter. Explain how this
second theory explains something not explained, or not explained as well by the
first theory used above.……
