To understand the roots of personality is to understand motivations and influences that shape behavior, which in turn reflect how you deal with the opportunities and challenges of everyday life. That's the focus of these exciting 24 lectures, in which you examine the differences in people's personalities, where these differences come from, and how they shape our lives. Drawing on information gleaned from psychology, neuroscience, and genetics, Professor Leary opens the door to understanding how personality works and why.

I have picked up a couple of the Great Courses  now and found them to be very high quality. This delivers as well. It provides a lot of the latest research on the differences in people's personalities. Mark Leary is an excellent presenter as well. #Audible1
