A comparison of three different viewpoints on the subject of personality. Carl Jung, B.F. Skinner, and Carl Rogers all had very different outlooks on what defined someone's personality. As an added feature, the writer included himself as a theorist because his views are also different from the previous mentioned theorists. This paper also looks briefly into the background of each theorist because their views on life began in their childhood. Amazingly one will notice they all had similar backgrounds, but came up with completely different ways of looking at life.

From the Paper:

"Understanding Personality. Personality is the unique, relatively enduring internal and external aspects of a person's character that influence behavior in different situations. To understand the many different theories of personality you must understand that personalities are as unique as snowflakes. No two people are exactly alike. Everyone has different experiences, parents, and lives. These differences cause all people to view the world a little differently than the person next to them. There are various thoughts of how and when personalities develop and grow. Psychoanalysts, Humanists, Behaviorists, and a psychology student at Hillsborough Community College all have different outlooks to personality. Carl Jung, Carl Rogers, B.F. Skinner and Don Verderosa represent each of these views. To get a better understanding of each theorist you need to look at where each one is coming from."
