Context and background to Australian research in personality and individual differences

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Interest and research in personality and individual differences, in why people behave the way they do and the implications for life and living, remain unabated around the world. Human beings are fascinated by how they are similar to one another and how they are different. The similarities and differences underpin many implicit and espoused theories of behaviour and of personal and professional practice, informing the decisions that we all make on what we will do and when.
