About the Author

 

 

 

 

Marianne Miserandino is the 2010 winner of the Robert S. Daniel Teaching Excellence Award, Four-Year Colleges and Universities, from the Society for the Teaching of Psychology (Division 2 of the American Psychological Association). She was also the 2009 Arcadia University Professor of the Year and the 2000 recipient of the Lindback Award for teaching excellence. She currently maintains the Personality Pedagogy web site for teachers of personality psychology (http://personalitypedagogy .arcadia .edu ) for which she received a grant from the Association for Psychological Science (APS) Fund for Teaching and Public Understanding of Psychological Science.

 

Her commitment to teaching is evidenced by her work as News Editor, reviewer, and frequent contributor to the APA journal Teaching of Psychology. She has conducted a 4-week study abroad program in Vienna, Austria for the Arcadia University College of Global Studies on the psychology of Sigmund Freud, Alfred Adler, and Viktor Frankl.  

 

Dr. Miserandino received her B.A. in psychology from the University of Rochester and a Ph.D. in Social-Personality Psychology from Cornell University. Dr. Miserandino came to Arcadia University after a postdoctoral fellowship in Human Motivation at the University of Rochester and full-time teaching.

 

Miserandino is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association.  Election to Fellow status requires evidence of unusual and outstanding contributions or performance in the field of psychology. Fellow status requires that a person's work has had a national impact on the field of psychology beyond a local, state, or regional level. A high level of competence or steady and continuing contributions are not sufficient to warrant Fellow status. National impact must be demonstrated.(http://www.apa.org/membership/fellows/index.aspx).

 

She is a member of the Association for Psychological Science, the Society for Personality and Social Psychology, the Society for the Teaching of Psychology, Sigma XI - The Scientific Research Society, and the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, and has served on the American Psychological Association Division Two Task Force for Minority Issues.

 

2010 winner of the Robert S. Daniel Teaching Excellence Award from the American Psychological Association’s Society for the Teaching of Psychology. This is a national, professional award that the APA gives for teaching, mentoring, and scholarship related to the teaching of psychology.  http://teachpsych.org/members/awards/index.php

When I had purchased this Book before few days ago I said to myself : "This is what I'm looking for !"

Comparing with other Books specially for "Personality Psychology" most of them for researchers in this field and little bit difficult to understand for readers who are seeking for rich , simple , clear foundation and reliable findings about human science.

The design of this book is simple and rich with graphs , photos , colorful text and elegant printing materials.

I highly recommend this book with best regards for the Author.

This is a pretty awful textbook. The first indication that something was wrong to me was that the book couldn't even delineate the difference between a law and a theory, and from that spot just a few pages in everything went downhill. The bolded "key terms" are extremely poorly defined and you really have to read multiple times before you can understand what the definition associated with each key term is supposed to be, and often times I noticed these key terms were redundant or defined in terms of each other which is absolutely awful for comprehension.

Not that this review'll help much. If your professor wants you to read it, you really don't have a choice but to read it.

Currently studying Personality Psychology with Dr. Miserandino at Arcadia University in Glenside PA. This book so far (Chap 5) is a fun lively view into Personality Psychology, it has good graphics and comes with a study guide from pearsons which has links to flashcards and quizzes, well atleast mine did, better check with seller before you purchase, all in all a good buy, will not be reselling.

It is like this book has never been used. It has great but long readings and I use it as my tool for information on the chapters because my professor barely gives notes and usually discusses. I also use the book to take notes to study for tests.

Very easy to read and understand this book. I'm a psychology major so I feel like this is going to be one of those books that I keep lying around for reference from time to time.
