Counter Motivated by their belief that the most interesting work on intelligence is now being done at the interface of intelligence and personality, Robert Sternberg and Patricia Ruzgis have collected a body of essays exploring the interconnections and interdependencies between these two constructs. The essays selected form a history of the fields of intelligence and personality, from the period of "grand theories," in which researchers sought to formulate overarching theories of the constructs as a whole, to the psychometric approach of factor analysis, to the development of situational and domain-specific theories, and finally to current research on person-situation interactions. Including work from such prominent researchers as Eysenck, Baltes, Dwek, Cantor, Ford, Smirnov, and Salovey, the book comprises an overview of the current state of the literature on the integration of the emotional and cognitive sides of a person's life. This will be a useful supplement in advanced undergraduate or graduate courses in personality and/or intellectual processes.
