PSYC 310 Research Paper

I just discovered the term paper topic for my “Theories of Personality” class, and it is a bit of a shocker: “WHO ARE YOU and WHY DO YOU DO WHAT YOU DO?”.

My first reaction to this is to run away from the topic screaming “I don’t want to know myself!” or some other overly dramatic action. I am a highly variable person, so this will likely be hard for me. I have to manage to lock myself into one state of mind for this paper.

The general idea of the paper is to answer the question of who we are and why we do what we do, defining ourselves by personality theories, then we must defend the theory used. This could be an interesting paper, but at the start my first reaction to it is shock and horror.
