    The first couple chapters, discussing scientific requirements for experimentation and data gathering, were pretty dry—to the point I put the book down for a couple months. But when I picked it back, I couldn’t stop again. It’s an engaging and comprehensive guide to all parts of personality exploration, as you would expect from a college textbook. I’ll be reading it again, as I’m sure I haven’t retained but a fraction of the vast amounts of information here.

    About as good as a book about personality by two middle aged, seemingly cis-gender, straight white dudes can get. If you're queer and have to read this for class like I am and did, be prepared to be completely left out of the narrative (again/still). Comprehensive review of "the field", but obviously very biased by its authors, one of which also chooses to emphasize sexuality ("mating") whenever possible.

    This was for my college course work and I actually read most of it except 1 chapter because I didn't have time two days before exam. XD Anyway it's actually a really great read. It even puts a few paragraphs of basics in case you haven't read anything about Personality Psychology before. Interesting stuff. :D This was for my college course work and I actually read most of it except 1 chapter because I didn't have time two days before exam. XD Anyway it's actually a really great read.

    This is a text book. That said, it is very high quality foundational material for studying personality theory.

    Absolutely a must have for any Human Behavioral Student and License Professional. I have learned so much from reading this book and it is now has a home on my Professional bookshelf and is referenced often.

    A must read for anyone interested in psychology. Will open your eyes to a new world. This was one of the first book we read at the psychology study at my university. And definitely the best one. That's saying something when you consider that we read 3000 pages each semester. A must read for anyone interested in psychology. Will open your eyes to a new world.

    An apprehensive, multi-faceted and smooth introduction to the field of personality psychology.

    This is a good book, but some chapters can be applied in the USA only unfortunately.

    First read: Perfectly A-OK intro to personality psychology. Would've liked some kind of example chapter where two or more domains of knowledge are applied to different cases. Nothing new, but neat. Second read: I was obviously starved for any kind of cognitive input last time. Scratch that. Easy and accessible, but no spark. Clear and orderly layout, but boring. Boring.

    I had to read this for my Intersession class, and it was an incredible read! I learned so much about myself, and why people behave and react they way they do. It was easy to read because the terms weren't too technical. Despite being a textbook, it's definitely a book I would recommend if you wanted to learn more about yourself (and why those people in your life drive you crazy)! =o) I had to read this for my Intersession class, and it was an incredible read!

    I had to read it for my University Psychology program it it was really interesting. It contains also a lot of examples which you can see or apply in real life situations. :) (One of the authors was our Personality teacher.)
