At the end of next week, you will have a Character Theory Paper due. In this 2-3 page paper, you will create a fictional person, or you can use a well-known current or historical figure, and detail the significant moments in this person’s life. You will then interpret this person’s decisions, behaviors, and possible life outcomes through the eyes of Freud, Jung, or Bandura.
