This module provides an in-depth analysis of a central area of psychology known variously as 'individual differences' or 'differential psychology'. We will build on several key areas of psychology that show substantial individual differences including personality, psychopathology, intelligence and cognition. We will then explore the proposed causes and effects of these individual differences drawing from research using approaches from psycho-dynamics to behavioral genetics. Finally, we will explore the evidence behind several key controversies in individual differences including the continuum between personality and mental health, the nature vs nurture debate, race differences in intelligence and genetic determinism.
