Interest in the study of psychology and religion has increased in recent years. Leading researchers in this field have specified areas in need of further investigation, one of which is the development of personality theory from a theistic perspective. This article highlights the significance of a doctrine unique to LDS theology"pre-mortal life"and its potential contribution to personality theory. Implications of such a far-reaching view of personality for research and practice in counseling and psychotherapy are also presented.
