Personality theories (CCC- Holdings)

Psychology -Personal growth –(CCC-holdings)

Personality Theory in a Cultural Context (Kelland) (2022) CC-BY-4.0 Openstax. Professional psychologists always seek to move beyond what people think they know to determine what is actually real or at least as close to real as we can come.

Dress, Appearance, and Diversity in U.S. Society (Reddy-Best, Elder and Hassall) (2022) CC-BY-4.0 Openstax. This book introduces topics about identity, dress, and the body. Through the content, readers explore how individuals and communities use dress as a way to communicate (i.e. “negotiate” in fashion studies) their various identities.

Self-Efficacy (Maddux and Kleiman) (2022) CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0. Self-efficacy does not refer to your abilities but to how strongly you believe you can use your abilities

Creativity (Simonton) (2022) CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0. Distinguish personal “little-c creativity” from consensual “Big-C Creativity.”

Personality Assessment (Watson) (2022) CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0. This module provides a basic overview to the assessment of personality.

Self-Regulation and Conscientiousness (Baumeister) (2022) CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0. Self-regulation means changing oneself based on standards, that is, ideas of how one should or should not be. It is a centrally important capacity that contributes to socially desirable behavior, including moral behavior.

Self and Identity (McAdams) (2022) CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0. For human beings, the self is what happens when “I” encounters “Me.” The central psychological question of selfhood, then, is this: How does a person apprehend and understand who he or she is?

Intellectual Abilities, Interests, and Mastery (Lubinski) (2022) CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0. Psychologists interested in the study of human individuality have found that accomplishments in education, the world of work, and creativity are a joint function of talent, passion, and commitment

Research Methods in Developmental Psychology (Lukowski and Milojevich) (2022) CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0 This module describes different research techniques

Attachment Through the Life Course (Fraley) (2022) CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0. The purpose of this module is to provide a brief review of attachment theory—a theory designed to explain the significance of the close, emotional bonds that children develop with their caregivers and the implications of those bonds

Social and Personality Development in Childhood (Thompson) (2022) CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0. Childhood social and personality development emerges through the interaction of social influences, biological maturation, and the child’s representations of the social world and the self.

Aging (Queen and Smith) (2022) CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0. Traditionally, research on aging described only the lives of people over age 65 and the very old. Contemporary theories and research recognize that biogenetic and psychological processes of aging are complex and lifelong.

Emotional Intelligence - New Perspectives and Applications (2012) Emotional intelligence is an emerging construct for applied research and possible interventions, both in scholastic, academic and educational contexts, organizational contexts, as well as at an individual level in terms of people's well-being and life satisfaction.
