Cognitive Information-Processing Psychology is a stupid name for what is essentially Cognitive Psychology. Closely related to cognitive science, this way of thinking emphasizes category theory, cognitive processes, and the model of the mind as a computer. During the cognitive revolution of the 1970s, cognitive approaches exploded throughout psychology, so that now this is the dominant way of thinking about psychology in general. This is somewhat less true when applied specifically to personality, but the cognitive approach is certainly very popular in this field as well.
