Individual differences are what most people probably consider psychology to be about: what are people like and what makes them that way? The module introduces theories about differences of personality and of abilities such as intelligence; their origins, in genes and culture, their measurement and analysis, and their consequences, for behaviour, lifestyle and, ultimately, mortality.
