  • Individual difference psychology examines how people are similar and how they differ in their thinking, feeling and behaviour.
  • For example, people can be classified according to intelligence and personality characteristics.
  • People are complex, however, and there are multiple theories and evidence as to what are the prevailing aspects of psychological differences.
  • The general structure for this course is to study intelligence for the first 5 weeks, then personality for 10 weeks.
