What are the personality characteristics of criminals? Is there a cancer-prone personality? And do extroverts have better sex than neurotics? Looking at the role of personality in several spheres of life, from crime to consumption, and health to education, 'Personality and Social Behaviour' examines how personality is related to everyday social behaviour.
Taking a topic-led rather than theory-based approach, the authors provide a comprehensive, critical and accessible account of the role of individual personality in everyday life. Each chapter examines the personality variables which affect particular social behaviour, and the text as a whole reviews and integrates the findings of contemporary research literature.
Topics covered: health; learning; ideology; relationships; crime; creativity; humour; work; leisure; consumption.
