The Handbook of Personality Dynamics and Processes,
Edition 1
Edited by John F. Rauthmann

Publication Date: 02 Feb 2021

The Handbook of Personality Dynamics and Processes is a primer to the basic and most important concepts, theories, methods, empirical findings, and applications of personality dynamics and processes. This book details how personality psychology has evolved from descriptive research to a more explanatory and dynamic science of personality, thus bridging structure- and process-based approaches, and it also reflects personality psychology’s interest in the dynamic organization and interplay of thoughts, feelings, desires, and actions within persons who are always embedded into social, cultural and historic contexts.

The Handbook of Personality Dynamics and Processes tackles each topic with a range of methods geared towards assessing and analyzing their dynamic nature, such as ecological momentary sampling of personality manifestations in real-life; dynamic modeling of time-series or longitudinal personality data; network modeling and simulation; and systems-theoretical models of dynamic processes.

Key Features

  • Ties topics and methods together for a more dynamic understanding of personality
  • Summarizes existing knowledge and insights of personality dynamics and processes
  • Covers a broad compilation of cutting-edge insights
  • Addresses the biophysiological and social mechanisms underlying the expression and effects of personality
  • Examines within-person consistency and variability
