For your alternative task, you are asked to provide a 2000 word essay on the evolution of personality theory. You should start with Freud, and conclude with the perspective that is most widely used today, trait theory. In your essay, you will need to describe the various perspectives, as well as their strengths and weaknesses with respect to understanding personality, and, where applicable, personality measurement and therapeutic applications. Title page and reference list are not included in your word count, but in-text citations are. You will need to refer to a number of academic resources to support your writing, and you can use your textbook.
