I’m working on a psychology discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Gordon Allport was interested in studying healthy, mature, adult personalities. Based on Allport’s 6 criteria, evaluate how you are doing on each of the attributes. Then, rank them in order of your strongest to your weakest. Address the following:
What are some areas that still need improvement?
Are you a mature, healthy adult according to Allport’s definition?
Do you know others who meet this definition?
- Respond to the discussion questions above, and include at least 1 of the following ideas in your response:
- Do you have a unifying philosophy of life?
- Do you agree with Allport regarding the importance of religion or a philosophy of life?
What aspects of trait theory can help you better understand the individuals that you interact with on a daily basis?
