Glossary Suggested further reading Bibliography Author index Subject index Preface Since the publication of An Introduction to Social Constructionism in I have been delighted by and grateful for the many messages of appreciation I have received from readers. As in the earlier publication, I have generally adopted the position of the advocate, so that my overall strategy has been to persuade the reader of the advantages of a social constructionist approach. However, this is not an uncritical advocacy and I have also discussed the weaknesses and inadequacies of social constructionism and indicated the areas where I believe it needs to be developed.
Secondly, we can question the idea that our personality is inside us. Think of some of the personalitytype words that are used to describe people, for example: Without the presence of other people, i.
The point is that we use these words as if they referred to entities existing within the person they describe, but once the person is removed from their relations with others the words become meaningless. They refer to our behaviour toward other people.
The friendliness, shyness or caring exists not inside people, but in the relation between them. Of course you could reply that, even on the desert island, a person can still carry with them the predisposition to be friendly, shy etc. We can neither prove nor disprove the existence of personality traits, and similarly we cannot demonstrate the truth of a social constructionist view simply by an appeal to the evidence.
In the end our task may be to decide which view offers us the best way of understanding ourselves and others and thus of guiding our research and action. Thirdly, if personalities really are essential features of all human beings then we should expect to find personality as we know it in all human beings, no matter what part of the world they inhabit.
But it is clear that all peoples do not subscribe to our western view. In some cultures, people account for their actions by reference to invisible spirits and demons and would find our idea that behaviour originates in personality a very strange one. Also, the personal uniqueness and private nature of things like emotions is not an assumption made by all cultures, as Lutzhas pointed out.European Commission - Press Release details page - Brussels, 15th July CONTENTS A.
