Perhaps the central question of psychology involves how personality—personhood—is formed. The twin factors or causes, of nature (genetics) versus nurture (environment), always lurk and subtly interplant in an epigenetic synthesis. This book, for professions as well as for general readers, identifies and consolidates an understanding of personality development, personality type, and personality style. Twelve Styles are identified and displayed through case examples. Examined is the powerful organizing principle of how emotion, especially anger, is managed. A detailed glossary helps guide the reader.

Spanning a 60-year career in the field of mental health, Dr. Henry Kellerman has held professional academic appointments in the psychology doctoral programs at several universities and clinical appointments at mental hospitals. In addition, he was the director of the psychology internship program at the Postgraduate Center for Mental Health in New York City, where he was also a training analyst and senior supervisor in the center’s Psychoanalytic Institute. He holds fellow status in the American Psychological Association, the American Group Psychotherapy Association, and the Academy of Psychoanalysis, and is a Diplomate in Clinical Psychology and Psychoanalysis, of the American Board of Professional Psychology.
