Personality - Intro to Psychology

  • 0:01 - 0:06
    Your personality is what makes you uniquely and consistently you. Personality
  • 0:06 - 0:10
    is defined as an individual's pattern of thinking, feeling and behaving. Now,
  • 0:10 - 0:15
    let's take this hypothetical situation. What if I just met Rosio and I see her
  • 0:15 - 0:19
    acting in an unfriendly way? Am I likely to conclude that she's an unfriendly
  • 0:19 - 0:24
    person? Well, I might. But that might not be correct. Because I've only seen
  • 0:24 - 0:28
    her acting this way in that one situation. I haven't seen her under many
  • 0:28 - 0:32
    circumstances over a long period of time, and those are two things that we need
  • 0:32 - 0:37
    if we're going to make a conclusion about someone's personality. We just know
  • 0:37 - 0:41
    something about the mood she was in, or how she was behaving that day.
  • 0:41 - 0:45
    Everybody acts differently sometimes. The most introverted person can light up
  • 0:45 - 0:49
    when they're around their friends. The kindest person can sometimes be angry or
  • 0:49 - 0:55
    even hostile. But personality is how we behave most of the time.
