Personality refers to consistent ways we think, perceive, feel, and behave. Each of us has developed a personality that helps us move through life and the world. Our personality is a blend of the temperament we were born with, the environments to which we needed to adapt, and the interaction of the two. For some, what feels consistent is that the ways of experiencing life are too rigid. For others, the only thing that feels consistent in life is the experience of inconsistency. The ways in which you might have had to adapt to your environment, your caregivers and culture were likely helpful in that context but may be causing difficulties currently. Sometimes the very same thing about our personality that is helpful in some contexts (e.g., our work life) causes continual problems in others (e.g., our personal relationships).
