PART 1 Child Development and Pedagogy
Explanation : In the surface view one would assume that the person's personality organisation is more substantial and dynamically orchestrated than it is in fact. Surface view traits are composed of the source traits that can be observed in an individual and are easily observable and common chesters of behaviour.
