Episode Details

The classroom avenger on a deadly rampage, couples who discover their incompatibility after marriage, recruiters seeking applicants with a rare combination of traits—all reflect the range of issues that fall within the scope of personality. This episode looks briefly at personality from traditional perspectives before focusing on contemporary research: the big five personality traits, personality inventories, and Albert Bandura’s social-cognitive perspective. The program continues to probe the dimensions of just who we are by looking at studies of the self and self-esteem with Hazel Markus, Claude Steele, and other prominent psychologists.
