You are being asked to develop and present your own integrative theory of personality, following the behavioral model. By piecing together segments of existing theories, you will get some creative, theory-building experience, without the time-involvement associated with traditional theory creation.
Your final paper itself must provide an integration of ideas from at least three different theorists (please use at least 3 if not 4). These components may be large or small, and you are not limited to three. You may choose to use the ideas of one theorist as your main focus and integrate only small portions of other theories. Your paper must include the following: (1) a definition of personality, (2) a description of its markers (that is, how is it identified?), (3) an outline of its developmental course, (4) personality assessment instruments you would find useful in a counseling practice.
