Hello and welcome to our certification online course on Psychology of Personality. I am Gloria Dimitrova and I will be your lecturer in the upcoming training. The aim of the training is to gain in-depth knowledge of the psychology of the personality, to understand why this part of psychological science is important, and how generally personal psychology contributes to the behaviour and life of the person. The training is divided into five main lectures into the most influential theoretical concepts and schools on understanding the notion of personality.
In the first lecture, we will introduce the psychoanalytic personality theory created by Sigmund Freud. We will turn our attention to the three psychic structures (Id, Ego and the Super-ego), their functions and meaning. We will look at the notion of a person in terms of classical psychoanalysis. We will introduce Freud's ideas and views on the drive to life and the drive to death.
In the second lecture, we present the ideas and views of Karl Gustav Jung and analytical psychology about the personality. We will focus on some differences in Yung and Freud's views and we will look at the three personality kinds in the theory of Jung. We will introduce you to the idea of the personal conscious, personal unconscious and the collective unconscious, their meaning and functions, and we will look at the typology of the personality created by Jung, which most people know as the psychological notions of introvert and extrovert.
In the third lecture of the course, we will present you the ideas and views of Erich Fromm and his critique of Sigmund Freud's theories. We'll look at the escape mechanisms dealt with by Fromm. We will focus on Karen Horney's insight into the female psyche and her views on anxiety, and we will look at the personal orientations described by Horney.
In the fourth lecture, we will present the ideas and views of Alfred Adler and individual psychology. We will look at his social approach to personality. We will look at the social interest, its significance and its functions. We will introduce Adler's idea of the feeling of inferiority and the inferiority complex and how it can be overcome. And we will introduce you to the hypothesis raised by Adler about the conductor/leader/head of our lives, namely the sense of authority and superiority.
In the fifth lecture of the course, we present the situational and dispositional approach to the personality. We will look at the ideas and views of Gordon Allport, Hans Eysenck, Kurt Lewin, Raymond Bernard Cattell and Walter Mischel. We will introduce the idea of features and dispositions. We will also look at the main criticisms of the two approaches to explaining the person.
Thank you for your attention and wish you pleasant and fruitful minutes with our training.
