I am writing a paper and do not understand part of this question. The question is as stated: Describe the background, theoretical perspective, and contributions to the field of psychology of the person you have chosen. What is meant when I have to describe their theoretical perspective? I looked up theoretical perspective but just don't understand.
Theoretical perspective is the way in which the person views the world, its people, and their interactions. Freud, for instance, saw everything as parts of a person's id, ego, and superego. He felt that a person's personality developed from early childhood and had a lot to do with his relationships with his mother.
