Your Character and Personality Ms. MacLean FAM621 February 2012
Character • Character: the personal qualities and features that guide our decisions, tell of the kind of person we are, and keep us steady in a life of uncertainty. • If your friends, family, and teachers were to describe you, what would they say?
Your Personality • Personality: is the sum of all characteristics that make a person unique. • The word “personality” is derived from the Greek word “persona,” which means mask. • Personality is seen by others as a total impression of who a person is.
Personality Traits • Extroverts: like to be around people and communicate with them. • Introverts: find satisfaction in being alone. They do not require as much interaction as extroverts do. • Most people are a blend of extroversion and introversion.
Personality Traits • Are you an introvert or an extrovert? • Do you have certain personality traits depending on the situation or event? • Under what circumstances are you an extrovert? An introvert?
Personality vs. Character • What is the difference between a personality and a character? • Challenge: Look at yourself and try to identify 5 character traits and 5 personality traits.
