Also, explain the theories used to explain the individual’s behavior/personality and describe any assessments that might be used in assessing the individual’s personality from each theory. Be sure to include recent research to support your selections. The paper should be at least 6 pages long of content (that does not include the title page, abstract page, and references list).
