Overview

This book presents a state-of-the-art survey of longitudinal research that documents the coherence (rather than consistency) of personality across the life course, surveys some modern approaches to personality assessment, and demonstrates the processes by which personality can change for the better.

Studying Lives Through Time offers methodological contributions that emphasize conceptual and empirical aspects of data interpretation as well as statistical issues. Substantive contributions from recent studies provide several specific examples of how personality coherence results from the way people select and change their social environments over the course of their lives.

This softcover edition is a re-release of the 1996 hardcover edition.
