The Science of Personality: Four Projects of General Personology

2012. Vol. 9. No. 1. P. 21–39 [issue contents]

The paper provides the basis and outline of the perspective development of general personology that emphasises the multidimensional relation of psychology to personality as its research object, its creator, its target, its goal, and its ideal. This approach to psychological theory and practice is positioned as a new science of personality that is interested in persons and created for persons. Four research projects are outlined aiming to create a personological synthesis between academic, counselling, and cultural psychologies of personality. The paper emphasises the need to create a synthesis of existing theories, models of counselling, and cultural experience, in order to unveil the potential of personality for self-construction, self-understanding, and authentic dialogue with others.
