Personality development is the development of the organized pattern of behaviors and attitudes that makes a person distinctive. Personality development occurs by the ongoing interaction of temperament character, and environment.
Personality is what makes the student a unique person, and it is recognizable soon after Class-X. Students’ personality may be changed at different stages of their academic life. Their personality shows their approach to the world and how they learn the things due to their genetically transmitted knowledge. There are no genes that specify personality traits, but some genes do control the development of the nervous system, which in turn controls behavior. Most psychologists agree that the factors—temperament and environment—influence the development of a student personality the most. Temperament, with its dependence on genetic factors, is sometimes referred to as “nature,” while the environmental factors are called “nurture.” the set of emotional, cognitive, and behavioral patterns learned from experience that determines how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. A student’s character continues to evolve throughout life, although much depends on inborn traits and early experiences. Character is also dependent on a person’s moral development.
