Personality refers to individual differences in characteristic patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving. The study of personality focuses on two broad areas: One is understanding individual differences in particular personality characteristics, such as sociability or irritability. The other is understanding how the various parts of a person come together as a whole.
This two-day course on personality is a knowledge intensive foundation for the study of psychometric testing theory and applications in occupational psychology. The course is designed to walk us through the historical journey that ultimately led to the modern understanding of personality.
The interesting journey starts from the psycho-analytic, the neo-analytic theories towards biological and existentialism theories and ultimately reviews the behaviorism, cognitive and traits and skills theories.
In this exciting journey, we discuss interesting and controversial topics of pseudo-science, free will, ego, identity and genetic differences. We also explore neuro-science, twin studies and gender differences, and how they shaped on understanding of personality, so that we can apply these theoretical frameworks to our day-to-day work.
Throughout the course, we discuss the implication of each theory on occupational psychology and various applications of the theory in the workplace.
This is a full two-day course.
