Theories of Personality: A Zonal Perspective John M. Berecz Test Bank0 out of 5
ISBN-10: 0205439160 • ISBN-13: 9780205439164
Instead of using a historical, categorical, or research approach to teaching personality, John M. Berecz maps theories and research onto a zonal grid to facilitate comparison and analysis.
What exactly is a “zone?” Berecz uses a unique and logical organizational structure to sort diverse theories of personality into zones of commonality. Each personality theory is located in a particular zone, based on the level of analysis (micro or macro) and whether the theory focuses mostly on the person or the situation. For example, Skinner’s behaviorism (chapter 3) is located in the Situational Zone, while Freud’s psychoanalysis (chapter 6) is found in the Insight Zone.
This zonal perspective facilitates learning and retention by providing a broad context within which students can understand and organize information that might otherwise appear as an overwhelming mass of interesting, but disconnected ideas. Using a zonal perspective allows instructors to “connect the dots” among a broad array of diverse theories and research findings.

Today personality psychology is undergoing a renaissance in which new research and theory is emerging. This textbook helps students keep up with those emerging trends.
Personality: A Systems Approach employs a new organization that integrates the best intellectual traditions within Personality Psychology. Over its four parts, the book examines what personality is, what personality’s major subsystems (e.g., motives, the self) are, how personality’s parts are organized, and how personality develops.
