    Character is a very essential aspect of human living. But character is oft misunderstood and misrepresented by all and sundry. Character cannot be learned. It is innate and emanates from within.

    There is more on this subject if you are interested in knowing the real ingredients of character in the human person. Go to http://hubpages.com/hub/CHARACTER-AND-DISCIPLINE

    Character is who you are when no one is looking.

      I tend to agree. There're so many phony, plastic people these days...and those of us who think they're not, suffer from the tendency to become. We forget to live the secret US in public.

    I'm sorry, I disagree. I think character is not innate--it is learned. I think temperament is innate, and, I think we are all socialized through our familial relations, culture, and society. Though I saw your page about Character and Discipline, which quotes many passages from the bible and Christian point-of-view, I think you are stating we are characters of God; however, humans have free-will, where-as God is perfect. I think if characterization were innate, we would all be like cookie-cutter cookies: the same type, shape, and flavor. We are all different, we may be an image of God, but, we are different, and, this is due to the way man has emigrated from the beginning of our existence. Cultural anthropologists believe all man evolved from Africa. No matter, I believe we are all part of the human race, but, we differ in character because we grew apart with different tribes, different beliefs, different paths. I believe if we all had an innate sense of character, we would all agree, love each other, and, have no differences-whatsoever! Temperament, on the other hand, is the way people react and respond. Some of us react passively, some aggressively. And, behavior is a mix of character and temperament.
