Welcome. You have reached the default page for the personal home pages of William Revelle. It is possible that you have reached here by accident and meant to go to the Personality Project, the SAPA project or the Laboratory for Personality, Motivation and Cognition.

A set of pages meant to guide those interested in personality theory and research to the current personality research literature. Although some of the readings are available on-line, all should be available from most university libraries. Information about scholarly societies and graduate training programs in personality is provided for those interested in pursuing further study in personality theory. Course syllabi from personality theory and research courses are being added gradually. Some links to active researchers and personality laboratories.

SCIENTIFIC OBJECTIVES: To gain an increased understanding of the ways in which personality and situational determinants of motivation combine to influence motivational states, and how these motivational states in turn affect cognitive processes to determine cognitive performance.
