XX Preface

We are also indebted to Albert Bandura for his helpful comments on the chapter dealing with social cognitive theory. We also wish to thank these other personality theorists for taking time to discuss appropriate sections of earlier editions of this book: Albert Bandura, Hans J. Eysenck (deceased), Robert McCrae, Paul T. Costa, Jr., Carl R. Rogers (deceased), Julian B. Rotter, and B. F. Skinner (deceased).

Finally, we thank Mary Jo Feist, Linda Brannon, and Erika Rosenberg for their emotional support and other important contributions.

As always, we welcome and appreciate comments from readers, which help us continue to improve Theories of Personality.
