Sammanfattning

Does psychology approach personality from the wrong direction? The present text argues that conventional personality psychology, spproaching its object of study from "above", i.e., mapping out the individual´s consciously held attitudes and view of him-/herself, has chosen the wrong path to a tenable science of personality. The alternative would be to scrutinize the processes by which the perceiver construes his/her outside world, starting at the level where emotins reign supreme and subject and object are not yet celarly differentiated. Constructurs of teh classical projective tests preferred an analoguous strategy. By means of process methodology the built-in weaknesses of these methods can be neutralized. Even if present-day cognitive psychology is no longer pseudo-behavioristic, the present author doubts that its change of mind is genuine.
