With regards to resources, you could:

Draw upon lecture/seminar materials for guidance regarding the topics you choose, e.g., for the first question you can draw upon the materials from lectures/seminars that outline the applications of personality testing. You could also refer to: ‘Chapter 13 and Chapter 14 from: Cooper, C. ( Individual differences and personality (3rd Ed.). Routledge, pp. 207 229’ for guidance as this highlights some applications of approaches.

Furthermore, for the second question you can explore materials from lecture/seminar 4 to guide you as elements of the locus of control were covered.

With regards to the third question, although the lecture/seminar materials have not yet been released, in terms of a background into the topic of intelligence, ‘Chapter 5 from: Cooper, C. (2010). Individual differences and personality (3rd Ed.). Routledge, pp. 60 – 75’ covers elements of emotional intelligence. Additionally, some information into testing can also be found within parts of ‘Chapter 13 from: Cooper, C. (2010). Individual differences and personality (3rd Ed.). Routledge, pp. 207 – 229’

Regarding the fourth question, you could draw upon the Psychodynamic Theories of Personality lecture for guidance, and also parts of ‘Chapter 13 from: Cooper, C. (2010). Individual differences and personality (3rd Ed.). Routledge, pp. 207 – 229’

Remember, do not rely solely on these books! Please supersize your reading. You need to use research evidence to back up your points, and to critically discuss and evaluate points raised.

Use journals of interest to do this. Journals associated with the field of Personality and Individual differences can be found in the Introduction section of The Hub for the Personality and Individual Differences module.

Additionally, study skill sessions are also available to help build your academic writing skills. Please see The Hub for further details.
