Unique in its cross-cultural, global, and gender-balanced perspectives--and emphasis on humanistic and transpersonal psychologists--this book explores the positive aspects of major personality theorists, stressing each ones relevance for personal understanding. Exceptionally well-written and accessible, it encourages and supports readers in using themselves as the primary touchstone for each theory. Each chapter gives them opportunities to validate their insights through direct experience, and, by observing their own reactions, come to their own conclusions about the utility and value of each theory.
