Lecture Description

In this lecture, I talk about Big Five trait openness to experience, which is the dimension composed of an amalgam of creativity and intelligence. I also discuss IQ: how it is measured, what it means, how powerfully it predicts long-term life success, as well as the highly skewed Pareto distribution of creative production.

Here's a good representation of a Pareto distribution: www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPKKQnijnsM

Course Description

Psychology 230H is a course that concentrates to a large degree on philosophical and neuroscientific issues, related to personality. It is divided into five primary topics, following an introduction and overview. The first half of the course deals with classic, clinical issues of personality; the second, with biological and psychometric issues. Students who are interested in clinical psychology, moral development, functional neurobiology and psychometric theory should adapt well to the class. An intrinsic interest in philosophical issues is a necessity.
