Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

Psychology of individual differences examines why and how people differ from one another in their behavior (e.g. emotional or intellectual reactions). The course is focused on personality, temperament, intelligence and the area between personality and intelligence (e.g. cognitive styles). Among others, students will study and evaluate major theories of personality traits (e.g. Eysenck’s PEN theory, Costa and McCrae’s Five Factor Model, Cattell’s 16PF) and investigations devoted to temperament (e.g. Strelau’s Regulative Theory of Temperament). The consequences of personality for such psychological phenomena as stress, mood, performance and well-being will be also examined

This course will also familiarize students with modern theories and approaches to intelligence. Nowadays, many studies explore how intelligence is related to our cognition, biological basis, health, longevity or everyday activities. During the course we will try to find some answers to main questions concerning intelligence, such as: why do people differ so much in intelligence level? Is intelligence just a narrow academic skill, as some critics claim, or does it provide practical advantages in everyday affairs? What is life like for people of low, average, or high intelligence?

In brief, students will learn about theories, research, measurement, and applied aspects of individual difference psychology.
