Examine the theories of personality covered in the readings. Choose two and analyze the strengths and limitations of the theories. Compare and contrast them in relationship to:
- Basic or underlying assumptions
- Deterministic versus free will
- Awareness of self (e.g., conscious versus unconscious motives for behavior)
I have chosen Object Relations Theory and Interpersonal Theory. Can you help me understand the strengths and limitations as well as the comparisons and the contrasts of these two theories?
