Individual behavior

Opportunities to explore through attitudes, values, and personality
Book, paperback cover
Research into individual human behavior is as diverse as research on attitudes, values ​​research and personality psychology. In this book, the basics are presented first, and later also their relationships with one another. Since causal hypotheses have to be tested in the context of researching individual human behavior, ... two further chapters deal with the possibilities of such a test and the collection of corresponding data. The practical relevance of the topics discussed is then demonstrated using two practical examples, authoritarianism research and empirical election research. In addition to a summary of the most important lines of argument, the final chapter provides a suggestion for considering the issues discussed when researching individual human behavior
