Personality is a fiction built up as a 'fake entity' by human beings because they identify themselves with their senses and their emotions and their mind. Out of this identification and the experience of daily encounter with reality a 'personality' gets their feeling of existence. It is totally subjective because it is based on concepts and an artificial self image that let the individual react caused by ones limited and stored concepts to what ever shows up. These reactions and what has caused them is mostly not conscious and the individual is living them as part of their existence, turning around oneself and finding the reason for being hurt or feeling happy at the outside, but not being capable to see that all reactions are caused by ones own concepts and programmed self image.  The personality is not capable to go beyond ones limited built up structure, because receiving a kind of security and meaning out of it, the self defense is strong and will not allow influences that might reduce or change ones self-image. Personality is a self containing system that in a growing process is loosening up its structure and in an analytical process of self knowledge the individual is growing beyond 'Personality' and might finally find its *source*. Trying to get out of ones personality *right now* is like a person standing in a bucket and wanting to lift oneself up with the handle.  Personality is the particular combination of emotional, attitudinal, and behavioral response patterns of an individual. The differences in personalities among individuals is theorized to come from the differences of prior events and anticipated events for the individual. The person's own motivations for future decisions (building on their personality) would be affected from their history and past experiences in such situations. [1] Another way that personality can be defined is as an individual's characteristic style of behaving, thinking and feeling.[2] Different personality theorists present their own definitions of the word based on their theoretical positions.[3]Psychologists such as Freud, and Erickson have attempted to come up with personality theories. Personality can also be determined through a variety of tests. This may be done through the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI-2), Rorschach Inkblot test, or the Thematic Apperception Test (TAT). [4] The most popular technique is the self-report-a series of answers to a questionnaire that asks people to indicate the extent to which sets of statements or adjectives accurately describe their own behavior or mental state.[5] Contents  [hide]  * 1 Psychology * 2 Beginning of personality study * 3 Origins of the modern individual personality * 4 Extraversion and happiness * 5 See also * 6 Furter reading * 7 References * 8 External links| -------------------------------------------------
