The Handbook of Personality Dynamics and Processes tackles each topic with a range of methods geared towards assessing and analyzing their dynamic nature, such as ecological momentary sampling of personality manifestations in real-life; dynamic modeling of time-series or longitudinal personality data; network modeling and simulation; and systems-theoretical models of dynamic processes.
- Ties topics and methods together for a more dynamic understanding of personality
- Summarizes existing knowledge and insights of personality dynamics and processes
- Covers a broad compilation of cutting-edge insights
- Addresses the biophysiological and social mechanisms underlying the expression and effects of personality
- Examines within-person consistency and variability
