Summary/Abstract: The paper presents the cognitive-experiential self-theory (CEST) as a global theory of personality that coherently integrates the most important insights from the classic theories of personality such as self/phenomenological theory, learning theory, cognitive theory, psychoanalytic theory, and emotions theory. The Freudian maladaptive unconscious is substituted for an adaptive unconscious which is an associative, emotionally driven, automatic learning system. This system is referred to as an “experiential system” because it adapts by learning from experience empirically. Also, humans uniquely process information with a “rational system,” which is a verbal reasoning system. The two systems operate by different rules and attributes. They operate in parallel and are bi-directionally interactive, both simultaneously and sequentially.
