Vad menas med personlighet?

Smith, Gudmund LU (2003) In Nordisk Psykologi: Teori, Forskning, Praksis 55. p.23-30
Abstract
The concept of personality is scrutinized as used both in common parlance and in more sophisticated frames of reference. Current multidimensional models are criticized for their reliance on self-descriptive questionnaires and for their lack of a hierarchical dimension, differentiating more or less decisive determinants of behavior. A possible psychoanalytic model is viewed with more benevolence but rejected in the end because of associationistic remnants still dominating its meta-theory. Instead a superordinate morel of personality is offered, based on process as its central ingredient.
