Product description


What most people want from a textbook is that it is up–to–date, well–written, succinct, and well–produced. This excellent new text admirably fulfils all those criteria. It is, for the record, also very well–referenced, with useful diagrams, summaries, and key readings. Written by one of the rising stars of differential psychology, it is a must–buy for all those interested in the latest research in this area. Adrian Furnham, University College London <!––end––>

Personality and Individual Differences is an accomplished survey of research on personality, intelligence, motivation, and other key individual difference factors. It succeeds admirably in presenting both received wisdom and new frontiers for differential psychology. The writing is always engaging, accessible, and insightful, and students and established researchers alike will find much of value in this book. Gerald Matthews, University of Cincinnati

This new book on individual differences by Chamorro–Premuzic has much to recommend it. The topic of individual differences is crucially important for anyone interested in the practical implications of psychology. Nonetheless, judgment is required in the choice of subjects and, in this case, the organization and topic selection is optimal. But, best of all, the book is clearly written and a joy to read; it is likely to become the standard for the field. Robert Hogan, Hogan Assessment System

This excellent textbook has been written by a colleague with an active research presence in differential psychology and provides comprehensive coverage of the latest developments in multiple fronts of the field. Indeed, the author often engages with the literature far more deeply and critically than we have come to expect from the typical introductory textbook. As regards the organization of the book and accompanying learning aids and illustrations, they are didactically exemplary. We will be seeing many editions of this textbook and deservedly so. K. V. Petrides, Institute of Education, University of London

This textbook is an excellent introduction to the study of the domain of individual differences. Undergraduate students will like the catchy format of the chapters, built around key questions and including short definitions of the key terms and clarifying figures on the relationships between constructs. The chapters assume only baseline knowledge of data analysis and statistics making this textbook attractive for a broad audience. Lecturers will appreciate the range of themes covered, and the attention for applications of individual differences research. In sum, this book is a must for all involved in the teaching of differential psychology in undergraduate programmes. Filip De Fruyt, Ghent University

This book, from a highly visible researcher in the field, can be commended for its coverage of the field and its highly readable style. It qualifies as an excellent textbook. What I liked most was the successful attempt to elaborate relations and interfaces between personality constructs as well as their relevance for everyday life.
Aljoscha Neubauer, University of Graz

Differential psychology is gaining prominence again in modern psychology. The topics of intelligence, personality, and other psychological differences are increasingly seen as important predictors of life outcomes, and as important outcomes in themselves. The field is sorely lacking accessible introductory accounts of differential psychology. On reading Chamorro–Premuzic s book, students will appreciate the topics addressed by this branch of psychology. The appreciation will be increased by the great human interest of the examples chosen by the author. It is hoped that this friendly introduction will engage students to pursue differential psychology further and become familiar with, and then master, the techniques that make the area so powerful in understanding why we differ from each other. Ian J. Deary, University of Edinburgh

"A good textbook with in–depth discussions of current issues in personality and individual differences."
