Personological and Life Story Perspectives

Murray’s Personological Approach

  • Murray came up with the term personology to refer to the study of the whole person. He believed that in order to understand an individual, the individual’s history had to be understood.
  • During World War II, Murray was asked to develop a psychological profile of Adolf Hitler. This began what is currently used as criminal profiling.
  • Murray believed that an individual’s motives are largely unknown to them.
  • Three unconscious needs have been the focus of current research: the need for achievement, the need for affiliation, and the need for power.
