Developing a personality is a life long pursuit. Ask yourself... what are you naturally good at, how do you want your life to look after you have reflected on it at the end, what type of person/people do you respect and want to emulate. Who you think you are or want to be at age 18 might be very different than age 28, etc... Remember to keep growing and challenging yourself. Don't get too comfortable and become afraid to move toward what you really want in life. Take deep breaths and time to reflect. I call this self conversation.
Finding out who you are is something everyone deals with in a different way. Some people slowly get to know themselves through how they handle situations and events in their lives, and some people determine who they are and who they want to be quickly, and don't stray far from that throughout their lives. All of the things in your life combine to make up you who you are. Who your friends are, the music you listen to, the clothes you wear, how you choose to spend your free time, your chosen job or career... but there are layers beneath the surface, and the every day routine that make you unique.
Although some people may think it comical, the concept of not really knowing yourself is a common obstacle, especially for teens, and young adults. The best way to go about truly finding yourself, is by diving inward, and not allowing other people to decide for you.
Some ideas on how to start the process may be just doing simple things like exploring different types of music, trying out different hobbies or sports, taking some local classes or workshops, spending time with new groups of people, trying out new recipes or restaurants, and just determining likes and dislikes. Once you have a basis, it will be much easier to figure out the rest.
Another idea might be to check out the internet, or local newspaper, and educate yourself on local and world events. By determining your stance on more serious issues such as GLBT rights, abortion, abstinence, religion, politics, animal rights, etc., you start to develop a deeper sense of those underlying layers, that seperate you from your peers.
Traveling is also a great way to get to know yourself pretty fast. Being outside of your regular element and comfort zone, and facing new things on your own can really help you determine how you'll handle yourself throughout your life, and who you want to be.
Although all of these things will help you develop a more complete idea of who you are on the surface, the deep, internal characteristics cannot be determined in a weekend, or a month. Some things just require time, and life experience. That can be the best part... knowing everything and living your life as a pre-packaged, perfect person would be boring! Living your life, and learning as you go is what makes you who you truly are. The journey is the best part! So don't be in such a hurry to figure everything out, but get excited to try new things, and to learn new lessons.
I interpret your question as how to become the you you really are. My answer: by doing the things you love. The more you do what you love the better you will get at it and the more you will love it. People will see how genuine you are and because of this trust will develop between them and you. Stay true to yourself and what motivates you. Good luck!
First let us be clear what the term Personality means. ‘Persona’ means mask, that bespeak that we’re just changing masks all the time. To clarify this look into any individual’s day in a life, in the morning before leaving for office he’s father, husband and a son. Then he travels to his office and in the process interacts with society where he puts on the mask of a citizen. At work place he is a boss/subordinate etc. so he has to behave accordingly, that is putting on the appropriate mask. Again after office he returns home and again puts on the mask of being a father, husband and a son. Hence the term Personality Development directs towards how capable one is in shuffling the mask as per need of the situation with right context.
To make it simple let’s assume the guy in the above example puts on the same mask of being a father/husband/son in the workplace, will it work? No!!! He has to be an employee so he has to put on the mask of a boss/subordinate. In many cases the marital harmony is also disrupted due this mask, that is, if one continues to be a boss in the house, then person starts treating everybody in his home as his subordinates and starts bossing around.
Let’s understand the term Personality Development, it means how well you perform in that particular mask meaning, how good a father/mother are you? How well do you perform as an employee? Etc... Personality Development means sharpening the edges in that particular role. So Personality Development is an overall growth of an individual and not only speaking well, walking confidently which is the generally limited understanding.
Believe it or not you already have a personality. If you're young or insecure, you might think that your particular personality isn't good enough. Some questions to ask might be, "What kind of personality do you want to have?" or "What is it about... read more
