Kien Bui Posted over 2 years ago Are we born with a certain personality type or our experiences shape our personality? Maybe both. But to answer that question, we have to define "personality." What is it anyway? Does it reflect our characteristics? Will it define who we are as a friend, a son or daughter, or an ordinary person. We often hear people refer to Type A and Type B personalities. Type A refers to people involved in never-ending struggle to achieve more and more in less and less time while Type B refers to those who tend to be easygoing, relaxed, patient... But do we only possess 01, and only one, type of personality for every circumstance? I don't think so. So then do we have multiple personalities? Maybe. Probably yes. Did we have a personality when we were a kid? Probably so. Do we have possess a particular personality, among others, in a particular circumstance now as we have grown up? Yes. Is it the same as our childhood personality? Probably not. That is, we are born with some particular personalities but our experiences growing up shape them dramatically and this process continues until we die.
