Summary
"The field of personality science has evolved rapidly in the past 25 years. A spate of reviews published in the early 1990s (Buss, 1991; Craik, Hogan, & Wolfe, 1993; Digman, 1990; Pervin, 1990; Wiggins & Pincus, 1992), along with a number of highly successful handbooks (starting with Hogan, Johnson, & Briggs, 1997), struck a positive tone, foretelling the "coming of age" of personality science. The review of the field occasioned by the editing of this handbook suggests that the field of personality psychology in fact has matured as a science, growing in prominence, recognition, and respectability (perhaps more outside of psychology than within) since the early 1990s. Thus, this is a very exciting time for personality science, and we have attempted to capture and reflect that excitement in this handbook. Accordingly, we asked authors not only to provide foundational material on their topic but also to communicate the big questions and exciting developments in their area, describe obstacles and issues that stand in the way of future progress, and suggest ways in which we as scientists and scholars can surmount these obstacles and continue to move the field forward. To bring a fresh perspective to the material, we sought to pair established scholars with younger scholars or with scholars whose views and expertise complemented rather than duplicated their own. Finally, we also invited a group of established scholars whom we felt had their "fingers on the pulse" of the field to share their visions of the future of personality science. In all of these ways, we hoped to produce a handbook that conveys the maturation of personality science, the excitement among current personality researchers, and our optimism about the future of the field. Of course, a handbook should provide an accurate and comprehensive portrayal of a field and its many subareas. Accordingly, we chose topics, and grouped them into thematically organized sections, that reflect the major domains of work in the field today. Thus, we included sections on the three foci that McAdams argued, in his 1997 review of the field, define personality psychology and distinguish it from other areas of psychology. These include (a) motivation and dynamics (Part II, Personality Processes), (b) Individual Differences (Part III), and (c) The Person as a Whole (Part IV)"--Introduction.
