This module is limited to students who register for the C1C8 or C800 programme This module provides an in-depth analysis of a central area of psychology known variously as "individual differences" or "differential psychology" and encompasses two core issues for behavioural scientists - personality and intelligence. Sex differences and other aspects of individual variation are also considered. The module will build upon the concept of individual variation in nature introduced in previous psychology modules and its relation to psychological dimensions on which humans vary. Key research programmes and controversies will be evaluated throughout this module.
