What Are Personality Traits?
Every person who lives a healthy life experiences some amount of character development. We all develop some kind of character in order to live. Some people choose a “good” character, others a “bad” character, and others a combination of both. People with an inner conflict have many choices. On a daily basis, they must decide which character they want to adopt. We often believe we are acting consciously when our character conflicts lead us to make bad decisions. We sometimes fail to recognize that these decisions are based on what we see as right or wrong, or what we feel is right or wrong.
Character is formed by an individual’s action. Human beings form character by their thoughts, emotions, motives, feelings, and habits. The concept of personality is derived from psychology, which focuses primarily on the mind. There is no such thing as an inherited character that will always act in the same way. A person’s character can change over time. Human nature is such that we all become more complex as we age.
We are all naturally moral, honest, compassionate, generous, and loving. In contrast, there are other characteristics that are not natural, but are learned. These characteristics are either inborn or acquired through experience. Personality traits that we can choose are either moral or immoral. Morality includes the values of honesty, loyalty, kindness, fairness, truthfulness, compassion, tolerance, forgiveness, kindness, gratitude, temperance, honesty, moderation, generosity, truthfulness, kindness, goodness, generosity, forgiveness, and tolerance. Unworthiness refers to behaviors that are considered morally wrong, such as lying, stealing, sexual promiscuity, and gambling. Unworthiness also includes behaviors that are considered morally acceptable, such as kindness, forgiveness, and generosity.
The concept of personality was introduced in the 1930s by Sigmund Freud. He recognized that humans respond differently to situations based on their nature of behavior. The person with an inner conflict may choose between a moral character with a good side and a character with a bad side. The person with the good side becomes the “good” character, while the person with the bad side becomes the “bad” character.
Each type of character has its own set of values. For example, there are two types of people who choose a “good” character because of kindness alone. They would not choose a “bad” character because of kindness only. If a person’s goal is to help people they would be a caring friend and a caring spouse. However, they would not be a caring friend or a caring spouse because of kindness alone. It is a difficult choice, because you must learn to balance your inner conflict with your inner needs and your outer needs.
Personality traits are not always inborn. If you have a positive personality, then people perceive you as a reliable person because of your positive nature. On the other hand, if you have a negative character, then you may be viewed as someone who makes bad choices because of your negative nature. You may want to choose a good character but cannot change your inner conflict because of your negative nature.
