Albert Bandura Albert was a successful psychologist who is the David Starr Jordan Professor Emeritus of Social Science in Psychology at Stanford University. Over almost six decades, he has been responsible for contributions to many fields of psychology, including social cognitive theory, therapy and personality psychology, and was also influential in the transition between behaviorism and cognitive psychology. He is known as the originator of social learning theory and the theory of self-efficacy, and is also responsible for the influential 1961 Bobo doll Experiment.

In A Primer in Positive Psychology (2007), Peterson explains: I believe that people possess signature strengths akin to what Allport (1961) identified decades ago as personal traits.
