Primary Concepts 

Prior to beginning work on this assignment, review sections 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4 of Chapter 1 in the text.

We have now covered five of the seven major psychological models that serve as frameworks for understanding personality. Each model has several theorists and numerous concepts that describe personality. That is what theories are—collections of related concepts meant to explain development. It is time for you to begin to analyze these concepts to determine which you think are most useful and applicable. For this assignment, you will identify one concept from each of the following models that you think is the best description for personality development from that model (the last three will be addressed in your Final Paper). Be sure to use proper APA headings to separate your conceptual sections. Address the following models:

  • Psychodynamic
  • Neurobiological
  • Trait
  • Cognitive

For each of the concepts chosen:

  • Apply a proper APA heading to separate the section. (For specifications for writing proper headings and other document elements, see the Ashford University Writing Center’s APA Style Elements (Links to an external site.).)
  • Describe the concept.
  • Identify the theorist associated with the concept.
  • Provide a rationale for why that is the most applicable concept from that model.

Keep in mind that the object of this assignment is to identify and discuss a specific concept from each model and not to focus on just one model or provide overviews of the models per se.

For each concept, you must use a scholarly source related to the concept from Ashford University Library to support your statements in the paper. Thus, the paper will have a total of four scholarly sources (as noted below) in addition to the textbook. Popular websites and your textbook may be used to augment these scholarly sources, but they will not count toward the minimum number of sources needed for the paper.

To assist you in completing the library research required for this assignment, view this Ashford University Library Quick ‘n’ Dirty (Links to an external site.) tutorial, which introduces the Ashford University Library and the research process and provides some library search tips.
