Narrative for the Integrative Personality Theory Paper
Prior to beginning work on this assignment, review sections 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4 of Chapter 1 in the text. In addition, read the e-book sections by Glanz (n.d.) and Saucier and Srivastava (2015).
The major assignment for this course is the development of your personal Integrative Personality Theory. In this paper, you will select one concept from each of the seven models covered in this course to include in your theory. Note that this is not meant to be an overview of each model, and the paper cannot focus on just one model. Rather, you are to select a specific concept from a theory in each model, and you must include one concept from each of the seven models in your final paper.

Introduction: Provide a general introduction to the topic of theories of personality. Explain what you plan to cover and describe the direction your paper will take. Note: This section will not feature a heading.
In this section, you will present the seven specific concepts identified from the seven models you think best apply to the study of personality in distinct subheadings.

In this section, present the concepts you have chosen to exclude in your theory of personality development. Reflect on the basic assumptions that define personality and identify three specific excluded concepts from any of the theories studied in the course. For each of the excluded concepts, provide a rationale explaining the various aspects of the concept that make it unsuitable for your use and compare and contrast it with the concepts you have chosen to include. Each concept will be approximately 2-3 paragraphs. In week three you need to flesh out the section for one of the three-all three are due in week five.
