This assignment has two parts. In the first part,

  • Provide an overview of the trait model of personality in which you identify at least one principal theory and its theorist (i.e., Allport, Cattell, or Eysenck) associated with the model. (Please note that the trait model is more than just the big five—this part of the paper should cover the general history and evolution of the model.)
  • Compare and contrast the basic assumptions of the trait model and the psychodynamic model regarding the theorist’s explanations of personality development.
  • Use the scholarly sources you researched for this assignment as well as this week’s required sources to support your statements.

    • extroversion,
    • agreeableness,
    • conscientiousness,
    • neuroticism, and
    • openness to experience.
