Personality

Overview

Personality is the particular combination of emotional, attitudinal, and behavioural response patterns of an individual. The differences in personalities among individuals is theorized to come from the differences of prior events and anticipated events for the individual. The person's own motivations for future decisions (building on their personality) would be affected from their history and past experiences in such situations.  Another way that personality can be defined is as an individual's characteristic style of behaving, thinking and feeling. Different personality theorists present their own definitions of the word based on their theoretical positions.
