Personality psychology strives to get to know and understand man, his psyche as well as self-knowledge and self-understanding. It does so in different ways and using various methods. All of them can be useful, nevertheless, none of them is the one and only, which could bring objective information of lasting value... The awareness of the limited character of possible knowledge is an important condition for the interpretation of personality so that it does not end up in the realm of fiction, but rather adheres to reality and reaches the accessible degree of accuracy. Personality psychology is not, or should not be merely a theoretical discipline, but rather a field, which is usable in practise, and so the exposition also focuses on possible applications of presented knowledge.
