We would like to thank our own mentors and colleagues who, over the years, generated in us a profound interest in psychology . These include Arnold Buss, Joe Horn, Devendra Singh, and Lee Willerman ( University of Texas); Jack Block, Ken Craik, Harrison Gough, Jerry Mendelsohn, and Richard Lazarus ( University of California, Berkeley); Roy Baumeister (Florida State University-Tallahassee); Brian Little, Harry Murray, and David McClelland ( Harvard University); Sam Gosling, Bob Josephs, Jamie Pennebaker, and Bill Swann (now at University of Texas); Ed Diener (University of Illinois ); Gerry Clore ( University of V irginia); Chris Peterson ( University of Michigan); Hans Eysenck and Ray Cattell (both deceased); Tom Oltmanns, Roddy Roediger, and Mike Strube ( Washington University); Alice Eagly ( Northwestern University); Janet Hyde ( University of W isconsin); Robert Plomin ( King's College London) and Lew Goldberg (Oregon Research Institute) and Jerry Wiggins (University of British Columbia—Emeritus) as mentors from afar. Special thanks again go to Vicki Babbitt (Washington University), who handled many special requests along the way to this edition, including many last-minute overnight deliveries. We would also like to thank our team at McGraw-Hill, including executive editor Mike Sugarman, senior project Manager Diane Folliard, and photo research coordinator Sonia Brown. Special thanks go to developmental editor Liz Sugarman for coordinating the developmental aspects of this revision. Liz displayed all the characteristics authors can hope for in an editorial collaborator , including reliability , punctuality, accuracy, resiliency in the face of setbacks, clear communication of expectations, economical use of editorial authority, liberal use of editorial wisdom, and an intelligent sense of humor that we both appreciated.

Finally, RL would like to acknowledge family members who supported him and tolerated his neglect while he concentrated on this book, including his wife, Zvjezdana, and his children, Tommy and Ana. DB would like to thank his ".50" genetic relatives: his parents Arnold and Edith Buss; his siblings Arnie and Laura Buss; and his children Ryan and Tara Buss.
