For this class discussion, we will address an aspect of personality psychology, i.e. social constructionist view of personality. Your assignment is to read the accompanying article, “Do You Actually Have a Personality?” (Raskin) and search a minimum of one website which discusses the consistency and stability of traits, development, and types of personality as we have in the past conceptualized it.
Then,(1) in a paragraph essay, discuss the information that you found surprising/interesting in the article provided, (2) discuss the information that you discovered on the website and ultimately determine where you stand on whether we actually have a consistent personality or is personality fluid/changing from situation to situation. Discuss what you think about identifying traits, assigning personality characteristics, giving the reason(s) why you have taken this stand. You will then post your essay to discussion board. Your paragraph should be about 10-15 sentences in length. Spelling and grammar should be checked before posting. I would suggest that you title your paragraph before posting. Be sure to clearly state at the end what you have decided about defining personality, etc.
Finally, you are to post a relevant, informational response to two of your classmates. It’s great to be encouraging in your response, and I want you to do that, but your response should include additional information to forward the discussion.
Finally, provide the URL that you used in researching the subject and creating your essay.
THIS IS THE WEBSITE I CHOOSE. AND DOWN I ATTACHED ARTICLES TOO.
