dc.description.abstractPersonality psychology seeks to predict, explain, and describe individual variations in behavior. Personality is described as consistent and coherent patterns across time and space of affect, behavior, cognition and desire. Previously, personality inventories have only assessed the influence of affect, behavior, and cognition, however this study includes desire as an important aspect of these dynamic constructs that shape personality. The inclusion of desire in the ABC theory of personality is necessary to understand the inconstancies and individual variance in behavior on both the everyday level and the longitudinal level. This study assumes the argument that affect, behavior, cognition, and desire are the dynamic components of personality that interact with the more stable traits or attributes to form an individual’s personality and affect their behavior.en_US
