Book Description

Originally published in 1975, this book reviews the major personality theories influential at the time, including those of Freud, Kelly, Cattell, and Eysenck, and presents the main assessment techniques associated with them. It also discusses their application in such fields as abnormal psychology, diagnosis, psychotherapy, education and criminology.

The authors find none of the theories completely satisfactory, but pinpoint important successes and suggest a promising new approach.
