The Praeger Handbook of Personality Across Cultures by
How does culture impact personality traits? To answer that question, this book address current theory and research on culture and personality in an effort to determine how people differ--and how they are alike. They also address the accuracy or meaningfulness of trait comparisons across cultures and the methods and limitations of research on the subject. As most psychological research is conducted on participants from Western industrialized countries, a work that includes a wide range of cultures not only fosters a more complete understanding of human personality, but also broadens perspectives on value systems and ways to live. Uniquely brings together diverse topics and theoretical viewpoints related to personality across cultures, including cross-cultural, cultural, indigenous, evolutionary, and neuroscientific perspectives. Draws on cultural samples from every continent except Antarctica.
