Describe Your Personality
Every human being is unique. These are the most used words in this century but yes it is indeed true that all of us were created differently. It is amazing how these things happen but it does and we’re all awesomely peculiar from one another. Everyone has a distinguishing physical feature. One person may be tall, dark and smart while others are small, petite and slim.
Personality makes up the character and the very core attitude of an individual. In the absence of this trait, then a person will be considered as dull, boring and non-existent. Nevertheless, personality may be good or bad depending upon the person who is being referred to. Different types of personality includes a person who is always happy and inspiring, some are always emo or short for emotional and serious, some are adventurous and always jumps into risks, others are experimental and kind, while the rest may be a mixture of different kinds of personalities. An individual who is known to be most resilient and successful in life are the ones with persistent personalities. They make the most of every opportunities and never give up on every single challenges.
One person could be very strong and aggressive, mostly these are the people tasked with jobs in the law enforcement and the legal field. Their personality fits the type of work they are engaged in where bravery and courage is direly needed. Some women are very courteous and kind, they have so much patience and kindness to share. Usually people with these personalities end up as counselors, teachers or child care workers. The amazing factors in having different personalities and characters are the variety of our individual preferences. Everything built and created in this world connects with what the people love to do or to have. Businesses produce the perfect type of Levis jeans in accordance to the specific taste, style and personality of the consumer. The grocery stores manufacture the classes of food that are most sold out in the market depending on what the buyers like. So personality does not end with how are manners are exercised or shown to others but even our personalities affect the community, the nation and the world. Sadly, by reason of the personality and character that wars are also started and lives are lost. Negatively, personality could also be used to deceive others, to steal and destroy on the grounds of selfish intentions and reasons. This is where personality becomes a threat and causes negative effects. However, most of the time, personality is defined on a positive light and is advantageous on many grounds. A teacher has a professional personality that will attract her students to study harder, listen to her and obey her. Personality is comprised of character, the emotional and mental state of mind added with the physical traits of an individual. Likewise, personality starts when we are kids and develops through years of training, education and experiences. Sometimes, experience is the best teacher. Our character is honed by our parents, friends and the people surrounding us in such a manner that we grow more mature in the process and develop positive traits rather than negative behavior. Our personalities could either break or mold us into becoming better individuals. Those in the media and spotlight are more careful in showing their personalities because they are under the scrutiny and criticism of everyone who watches them. They are more pressured to only show their positive traits and this may be difficult if the person is not really kind or polite.
Personality makes a person.
