Skinner has made notable contributions to the theory of personality particularly in the area of personality development. Skinner seems to be critical about the contributions of theory to scientific developmen t. He is not totally anti-theory as some of his critics have labelled him. He sees his own contribution and principles as being derived from pn.•ci!!e experimentation. Even though he asked in one of his papers whether Theories of Learning are necessary, (Skinner, 1950), he later showed the need for theory in some areas, hence the discussion of Ski nner's theory of personality seems to be in order
