What does "personality" mean?

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskriftPeer review


The concept of personality is scrutinized as used both in common parlance and in more sophisticated frames of reference. Current multidimensional models are criticized for their reliance on self-descriptive questionnaires and for their lack of a hierarchical dimension, differentiating more or less decisive determinants of behavior. A possible psychoanalytic model is viewed with more benevolence but rejected in the end because of associationistic remnants still dominating its meta-theory. instead a superordinate model of personality is offered, based on process as its central ingredient.
