Assignment: Psychology of Personality Research and Well-Being Research Matrix
Research is a critical component of the foundation of psychological theory in general, and certainly has been critical in the development of theories of personality. When consuming research about a research topic, it is important to understand basic aspects of psychological research design, including being able to differentiate between qualitative and quantitative research designs, and to critically analyze, select, and synthesize peer-reviewed articles relevant to your research purposes.
For this Assignment, you will choose a topic on well-being within a given area of personality theory. Using the Walden Library, you will research a minimum of three current (5 years or newer) peer-reviewed research articles and organize your article information in a Personality and Well-Being Literature Review Matrix. A matrix is not meant to hold all of the details about articles found but enough to help you summarize the articles that interest you in the area of personality and well-being. You will then use your research to create a synthesis of the ideas presented.
From the Learning Resources, download the “Personality and Well-Being Literature Review Matrix” and populate it with the requested information about your three current (5 years or newer) peer-reviewed research articles related to your topic about how a given area of personality can be used to enhance the well-being of individuals.
