Part 1:  Compare and Contrast

In this course, you have been introduced to theories from four major theoretical perspectives:

  • Psychoanalytic
  • Behavioral/Social
  • Trait/Cognitive
  • Humanistic/Existential

For this assignment, you are required to compare and contrast these four major theoretical perspectives. Use the template provided in the sidebar and compare each of the four theoretical perspectives along the following dimensions of personality in not more than 100–200 words:

  • Free Will vs. Determinism
  • Heredity vs. Environment
  • Unique vs. Universal
  • Stable vs. Dynamic
  • Good vs. Evil

Support your conclusions with research and reasoning.

Part 2

In addition to the above, you are required to submit the final project paper. Collate all the personality analysis documents of your biographical subject from Week 1 through Week 5 into a single document. Your final project paper should be structured as follows:

  1. A title page.
  2. Abstract of the course project.
  3. An introduction that includes a brief description of your subject, along with a short discussion of why you chose this subject for analysis (from Week 1, Assignment 3)

  5. An analysis of your subject using one of the psychodynamic theories (from Week 2, Assignment 3)
