Behavioral, Social-Cognitive, and Humanistic Personality Theories Matrix

Introduction

The behavioral perspective believes that personality is the result of your interactions with your environment. The social-cognitive perspective suggests you learn from observing others not just what you learn from your own experiences. And the humanistic perspective stresses the whole individual and delves into free will, self-efficacy, and self-actualization.
