Annual Distinguished Lecture on Multicultural Psychology (April 2018)
Robert R. McCrae (Retired) has conducted research on personality trait structure, assessment, and development. He is co-author, with Paul T. Costa, Jr., of the NEO Inventories and of Personality in Adulthood: A Five-Factor Theory Perspective. In the 1990s he began a series of collaborations in over 50 nations that focused initially on the generalizability of trait structure across cultures, and subsequently encompassed analyses of the universality of age- and gender differences, scale reliability, and trait heritability. His Five-Factor Theory offers one way to reconcile the demonstrated universals of trait psychology with the indisputable variations in thinking, feeling, and behavior that are seen across cultures.
