Gordon Allport was a pioneering psychologist often referred to as one of the founders of personality psychology. In an essay entitled "Pattern and Growth in Personality," Allport recounted his experience of meeting psychiatrist Sigmund Freud. He rejected two of the dominant schools of thought in psychology at the time, psychoanalysis and behaviorism, in favor of his own approach that stressed the importance of individual differences and situational variables. Today he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the trait theory of personality. In 1922, Allport traveled to Vienna, Austria, to meet the famous psychoanalyst.

Allport was a man who was very generous with his search for the basis of personality. Like William James, he was open to new ideas and had a fine mind that would not accept the psychological simplicities that were popular in the first half of the 20th Century. His comments on Freud are logical and urge us away from the hero worship that Freud seems to have been given in almost every book on psychology that I read when I was younger. This book or some excerpts should be standard reading for all psychology counseling students. It shows us that the debate against Freud and many other ideas of that time were real and convincing. And more importantly, that the understanding of personality is an evolutionary process that should never become stuck in anything like Freudville. He also wrote a short, but very convincing book, Becoming, basic Considerations for a Psychology of Personality, that was based on the Terry Lectures delivered at Yale. In that book he argues for a larger vision of personality that is based on the simple concept of "Becoming." That is, that reality and the movement of time and intelligence is a fluid phenomenon that merits a larger concept than simply dropping all of the possibilities of man's imagination into neat boxes that somehow can explain men and women in the world around us, and all of their behavior. "One common error in psychology is to center attention upon only one propriate function and attribute to it all, or nearly all, of the process of becoming." (p. 57). For, as he argues, that we are on the road of Becoming, we are like James, excited and open to the fluxing and energy changing in our personal worlds, and at the same time, realize that we are only a very small component within the cognitive field, yet to be discovered, all around us. I think that is the theme for the 21st Century that can be taken from Becoming.
