How Costa and McCrae See Me
One of my best personality traits is my high conscientiousness. It causes me to be hardworking, dependable, and organized, which is a big advantage in school.

How Bandura Sees Me
My friends and I are going to a party this weekend. There will be a ton of people there, do you want to come?
Hans and Sybil Eysenck were trait theorists studying personality. They reduced normal individual variations of a personality test to 2-3 dimensions. The dimensions were extraversion/introversion and emotional stability/instability. They also believed the factors were genetically influenced.
Paul Costa and Robert McCrae were also trait theorists, but their Big 5 Factors were better at explaining a personality. The Big 5 Factors include openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. The Big 5 personality test based on their theory is the most popular modern approximation of trait dimensions.
Albert Bandura favored the social-cognitive perspective and believed that behavior is influenced by interaction between people's traits and social situations. One concept he theorized was reciprocal determinism, the interactive influences of behavior, internal cognition, and environment.
I am a very hardworking student, so I am in several AP and Honors courses. The more AP/Honors classes I am in and the more work I receive, the more hardworking I become.
