He critically observes the human behavior and personality. He figures out the authoritative and dominating factors that shape the person 's personality, thinking, cognition and motivational processes. According to Mulhollem,"Bandura simply observing the others and incorporating this concept into his theory". Social cognitive theory is a crust of the psychosocial, cognitive and behavior processing. This theory clearly asserts the humanistic elements such as individuality, contemplative self-awareness and cogitative reaction.
Unconscious mind: Like Freud, Jung believed that the psyche is a person 's total personality and strives to maintain a balance while opposing conflicting forces he also claims that the psyche is continually trying codevelop itself in a process he terms as individuation (Hopwood, A, 2014). Jung divided the psyche into three realms; the ego (consciousness); the personal unconsciousness; and the collective unconscious (Hopwood, A, 2014). The ego is what Jung considers to the centre of an individual 's field of awareness, it is - of a sort- a form of a gatekeeper influencing which contents and experiences will be selected to be available in the conscious mind and which information will be eliminated or ignored, it also deals with feelings, organisation of thoughts and sensations(Smith, Peter, 2013). The ego links the outer world with the inner world is said to arise from the Self during early developmental stages. According to Jung how an individual interacts with the world around them influences the type of attitudes and personality traits that they will incorporate, as is the example with extraverted people (those who are dominant in their social settings) and introverts (those who chose to be less dominant in a social setting) (Hopwood, A, 2014).
INTRODUCTION " Personality is the moral force governing body within the individual of those psychophysical scheme that determine his characteristics behavior and though " (Allport, 1961, p. 28). “A combine of attribute that makes a person unique” (Weinberg & Gould, 1999). One inclusive definition for personality is by Pervin (1996, p.414. pg.3) who cited: " Personality is the intricate associations of insights, influences, and practices that provide guidance and example to the individual 's life. Like the body, Personality comprises of both structures and forms and reflects both nature (qualities) and nurture(understanding).
Sigmund Freud 's Psychoanalytic Theory of Personality Personality refers to individual differences in thinking, feeling and behaving patterns (American Psychological Association, 2016). To explain these differences, Sigmund Freud introduced the Psychoanalytic Theory of Personality. According to Freud, personality develops from the interaction between Structural Modal agencies: id, ego and superego (Magnavita, 2002). Interaction of agencies depends on ego strength, which refers to ego’s ability in effectively mediating between the id, superego and reality (Akhtar, 2009). High ego strength forms healthy personalities whilst low ego strength shapes maladaptive personalities.
Carl Jung thought that some parts in unconscious are much bigger then sexual or aggressive emotions. In his writings about the person he explains that individuals are motivated by some unexplainable forces and forms that comes from the DNA. He believes that genetic code has a soul material that explains people’s aspiration to creative progressiveness and physical perfection. Jung’s theory about a psychological behavior helps us to understand the nature of people’s emotions, their relationship with he nature etc. it means the social behavior.
Introduction The personality perspective has been described by many theorists in order to explain behaviors behind a functioning person. There has been legendary theorists’ underlying this perspective, with different views and observations of understanding personalities exceptionally well. Regardless of lack of prominence in some approaches, their terminology and ideas still influence psychology today (Meyer, 2008). Only the two theories of Carl Rogers and Victor Frankl have been applied in the case study of Thapelo and Lerato. The Carl Rogers theory of the self-concept will explain the development and structure of personality, whereas Victor Frankl’s theory will explain the meaning of life as a dynamic of personality.

Sigmund Freud 's viewpoint on personality development differed entirely from social learning theory. He was a psychoanalyst and looked for unconscious motives, which influenced the behavior of the patients, he was treating. He focused on the subconscious much larger part of the mind, a storehouse of impulses, passions and inaccessible memories that affect our feelings and actions. In ancient Indian psychology this is known as "samskaras". It is believed that some of these samskaras are connected with previous lives experiences.
The trait of extraversion–introversion is a central dimension of human personality theories. The terms introversion and extraversion were first popularized by Carl Jung, although both the popular understanding and psychological age differ from his original intent. Extraversion tends to be manifested in outgoing, talkative, energetic behavior, whereas introversion is manifested in more reserved and solitary behavior. Extraversion and introversion are typically viewed as a single continuum. Thus, to be high on one it is necessary to be low on the other.
In 1923, Sigmund Freud proposed his theory that the make-up of an individual’s personality is largely governed by three fundamental components: the id, the ego, and the superego. Working through the unconscious and shaping behavior according to psychological fixations and conflicts or lack thereof, these elements evolve through five levels of psychosexual development (Freud, 1962). However, in spite of its compelling approach to the phenomenon, Freud’s structural theory of personality is riddled with limitations and as such, is subject to much criticism. The mind is layered into three states: the conscious, referring to the thoughts currently in our forefront; the preconscious, idle thoughts that can be easily accessed and brought to the conscious; and the unconscious, which houses the more instinctual drives that are repressed because it threatens the conscious’ equilibrium (Cloninger, 1996). Freud argues that the unconscious molds the personality as it accommodates the id, the ego, and superego (Freud, 1962).
