Personality down under; perspectives from Australia.

Ed. by Simon Boag.

Nova Science Publishers


312 pages




In his overview of Australian psychology, Boag (psychology, Maquarie U., Sydney) notes that it has historically been a personality and individual differences psychology. In two dozen papers, psychologists present their broad-ranging research interests, theoretical models, and applications in clinical practice and the workplace. Sections are devoted to research in the areas of personality and aggression (one title: "Slim-bags, Brownnosers and Other Creeps: Moral Disgust as an Interpersonal Avoidance System"), and humor and creativity. Most of these papers are based on work presented at the Australian Conference on Personality and Individual Differences hosted at the editor's campus in 2007.
