This Eighth Edition reflects the new developments within personality psychology, and gives the student a picture of the field as a cumulative, integrative science that builds on its rich past and now allows a much more coherent view of the whole functioning individual in the social world. This revision, subtitled: Toward an Integrative Science of the Person, is committed to making that integration, and its practical applications and personal relevance to everyday life, even more clear and compelling for our students.

In this new edition the focus is placed on distilling how findings at each of the six major levels of analysis of personality (trait-disposition, biological, psychodynamic-motivational, behavioral-conditioning, phenomenological-humanistic, and social-cognitive) still speak to and inform each other, and how they add to the current state of the science and its continuing growth.

From the Back Cover:

In this sixth edition of Introduction to Personality, Walter Mischel is taking the path toward a genuinely cumulative and coherent scienct of personality. No longer can the study of personality be divided strictly between alternative arguments and strategies, often in conflict with each other and discouraging to students seeking a unified view.

Substantive changes in this edition come from Dr. Mischel's collaboration with Robert Plomin, of the Institute of Psychiatry in London, in the revision of Part III, "Trait and Biological Approaches," Dr. Plomin contributes to Chapter 8, "Genetic and Biochemical Roots of Personality," and Chapter 9, "Traits: Biological Bases and Behavioral Expressions." Both of these chapters provides an up-to-date perspective on the important role of genetics in human personality and on the nature of traits.

Further change comes through the complete revision of Part VI, "Social Cognitive-Affective Approaches," which features the development of the Cognitive Affective Personality System (CAPS) model to give a fresh understanding of personality dynamics and dispositions. More attention is givem to the role of effect, emotion, goals, and motivation, and to new findings on the nature of personality coherence and its behavioral expressions. In addition, all other sections of the text are rivised to provide a comprehensive current perspective.

With the addition of the Instruction's Manual/Test Bank, prepared under Dr. Mischel's supervision, Introduction to Personality, sixth edition, wiil be a valuable asset for students learning about the "person" in general and themselves in particular.
