Personality is a dynamic and organised sum of characteristics which can be attributed to a person. This sum of properties therefore determines the way a person will react to various situations, the way he thinks and what motivates him.
The term personality is derived from the Latin ‘persona’ or mask. As a result, the assumption is that personality involves external behavior.
It is different from 'character' in that personality is influenced by upbringing and environment, whereas character is more often considered to be the make-up, (the congenital, often unchangeable) nature of that person.
Personality is also described as the unique and stable pattern of psychological and behavioural characteristics whereby one person is distinguishable from another. Expressed simply: The way in which someone handles varying situations or the behavioural pattern someone demonstrates in different situations is called personality.Order your PPA
