Introduction to Psychology: The Psychology of Personality

Assoc Prof Matthew Mundy, Monash University

Learn about about the complexities of personality, and what makes us - us

On this course, you’ll examine the factors that influence something as complex as your personality. You will explore the work of Freud on the psychodynamic perspective of personality, and consider theories of behaviourism, humanism and personality traits, considering how personality is influenced by the culture of the society in which you were raised.

You will also investigate models, theories and approaches of pioneers who contributed to our understanding of personality before examining personality tests to determine how they can be used to better understand our decision making process.

This course is part of our Study with Australia collection, with free upgrades and digital certificates supported by the Australian Trade and Investment Commission until 31st July, 2020. Explore more courses from leading Australian education providers.

This introductory course is for anyone interested in psychology - you don’t need any past experience.

It might be of particular use to learners who have already completed a Bachelor degree in other disciplines who are interested in expanding their science and research skills.
