Description:

This paper focuses on the recent questions and theories that have emerged on how learning theories affect individual personalities. The paper explains that conventional learning theories comprise the fundamental theories of knowledge and behavioral change; however, with the onset of new technology and new understandings of the complexities of the human brain, there has been an eclectic approach to the study of learning personalities that has led to new suppositions and conclusion. The paper goes on to clarify that within the domain of study of most learning personality theories are two major assumptions - stability of the individual personality and individual differences in people. The paper explores the learning theories of B.F. Skinner, Albert Bandura, and Julian Rotter, comparing and contrasting the tenets of their beliefs. The paper concludes with the assumptions that the individual is a reflection of his or her learning history, and that a person is the total sum of a wide range of life experiences that, when combined with social interaction, makes the individual who he or she is.
