Explore the complex factors and influences that help shape our personality and examine what makes us different, and why.
On this course, you’ll examine the factors that influence something as complex as your personality. You will explore the work of Freud on the psychodynamic perspective of personality, and consider theories of behaviourism, humanism and personality traits, considering how personality is influenced by the culture of the society in which you were raised.
You will also investigate models, theories and approaches of pioneers who contributed to our understanding of personality before examining personality tests to determine how they can be used to better understand our decision making process.
