This fun, smart read for anyone eager to better understand (and improve) themselves argues that personality is driven not by nature nor nurture—but instead by the projects we pursue, which ultimately shape the people we become. Traditionally, scientists have emphasized what they call the first and second natures of personality—genes and culture, respectively. But today the field of personality science has moved well beyond the nature vs. nurture debate. In Who Are You, Really? Dr. Brian Little presents a distinctive view of how personality shapes our lives—and why this matters. Little makes the case for a third nature to the human condition—the pursuit of personal projects, idealistic dreams, and creative ventures that shape both people’s lives and their personalities. Little uncovers what personality science has been discovering about the role of personal projects, revealing how this new concept can help people better understand themselves and shape their lives. In this important work, Little argues that it is essential to devote energy and resources to creative endeavors in a highly focused fashion, even if it takes away from other components of our well-being. This does not mean that we cannot shift from one core project to another in the days of our lives. In fact, it is precisely that ability to flexibly craft projects that is the greatest source of sustainability. Like learning to walk, forcing ourselves out of balance as we step is the only way in which we can move forward. And it is the only way that human flourishing can be enhanced. The well-lived life is based on the sustainable pursuit of core projects in our lives. Ultimately, Who Are You, Really? provides a deeply personal itinerary for exploring our personalities, our lives, and the human condition.

The Personality Puzzle offers everything students need to gain a sure understanding of personality psychology -- balanced coverage of classic and contemporary theories, accessible organization and pedagogy -- and the lively, often humorous prose of experienced teacher David Funder. Organized around the field's major domains/paradigms -- trait, biological, psychoanalytic, humanistic and crosscultural, and cognitive and learning -- the text outlines the foundations of personality psychology and emphasizes the significance of contemporary research. A new capstone chapter on personality disorders synthesizes these domains/paradigms. The Fourth Edition adds a new chapter on cognition and the self, new coverage of the "Big Five" personality traits and of personality in a developmental context, and a new Student Website to enable effective study and review. Takes a Contemporary Domains/Paradigm-Based Approach By organizing the text around major domains/paradigms -- trait, biological, psychoanalytic, humanistic and cross-cultural, and cognitive and learning -- The Personality Puzzle offers a broad view of the discipline's theories and research in an easy-to-understand format. A new chapter on personality disorders concludes the book by clarifying how the six paradigms are closely interrelated. Expanded Coverage of Contemporary Research The Fourth Edition's expanded coverage of contemporary research includes a more detailed treatment of the "Big Five" personality traits, a new discussion of personality traits across the lifespan, up-to-date coverage of the biological and cultural aspects of personality, a new chapter on the self, and updated coverage of cognition, motivation, and emotion. Theory in the Context of Everyday Life To help students understand the theories discussed in the book, Professor Funder includes, in each chapter, interludes that clarify concepts by demonstrating their relevance to everyday life. For the Fourth Edition, Professor Funder has added a question set at the end of each chapter that challenges students to apply what they learn in a real-world context.
