Course Description

The study of personality concerns individuality in human behavior patterns. The aim of this course is to understand why we behave differently by promoting knowledge of individual differences on personality. Personality psychology is an interdisciplinary field with links to many other disciplines. In this course, we put special emphasis on origins of personality, and biological factors of personality are discussed based on recent empirical findings on behavioral genetics and neurobiology.
