What is Personality Psychology?

What is Personality Psychology? Personality psychology is the study of the individual differences that make people unique, including their thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and motivations. Personality psychologists study how people develop their personalities, how they differ from one another, and how personality traits influence behavior, relationships, and life outcomes. Personality psychologists use a variety of methods, including self-report questionnaires, interviews, and behavioral observation, to measure personality traits such as extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, neuroticism, and openness. They also study personality disorders, such as narcissistic personality disorder or borderline personality disorder. The field of personality psychology has important implications for understanding human behavior and for practical applications, such as in the fields of clinical psychology, organizational psychology, and social psychology. By understanding the ways in which personality traits influence behavior, psychologists can develop interventions to help individuals change their behavior, improve their relationships, and achieve their goals.
