Part of the Path in Psychology book series (PATH)


The present monograph deals with process as the theoretical hub of personality theory. Attached is a bundle of methods for personality description. Chapter 1 focuses the twin concepts of process and structure. These differ above all with respect to rate of change, structure referring to slowly changing process trajectories. Unlike trait, central in contemporary, factorial personality models, structures are not reified entities but active constituents of personality dynamics.
