Hi, this is Jane Fendelman for About.com and this video is "what is personality?"Personality is a person's consistent thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that do not change throughout their life. That is their personality.  Your personality makes you unique. In all the world there is no one else with your personality and your particular nuances.One of the components we look at in personality is consistency. There are different schools of thought but the majority believe that personality does not change throughout the entire life of the person.  Another component we look at in personality is nature/nurture. Nature is when we believe that people are born with a particular personality. They come into the world a certain way. Maybe they're an introvert or an extrovert. This is something that we can't control. Then, there's also the influence of nurture. That is how we're raised, the environment in which we are raised and the people around us, and the programming we receive from those people. Both have an influence on how we are and who we are and how we deal with and look at the world.There are three ways of being in the world. There are those people who, if they are cold, they'll get up and put on a sweater. They'll change themselves. Then there are those people who will get up and change the thermostat. They'll ask a change of the environment or the people around them. And then there's the third way of being, which is the highest way, and the wisest way. That is to be able to do both, and to know which to do when. Make a change in yourself or ask for a change from those around you.  There are numerous personality theories and tests that you can take and study, and I invite you to explore that.When you're looking at your personality you may find things you don't like. I invite you to learn to love those aspects of yourself. Some philosophers call them your dark side. Learn to love them, because when you hate them and try to drive them out, they have a tendency to go underground and run you unconsciously. So learn to love every aspect of yourself and then your personality will come out more beautifully. Thank you for joining me, and if you'd like to learn more about this topic, please visit us on the web at About.com
