Chapter 14 is all about personalities, and how they make us who we are. Personality is people's typical ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving. What struck me most about this chapter was a part about personality traits changing. The book talks about studies that demonstrate that a person traits can change prior to the age of 30, but after 30 they do not change much at all. This number made me think a little bit of why it is 30 instead of 40, and why is it that at that age we don't change anymore. I think it has something to do with our maturity as human beings and the fact that as we grow older we become more wise, and we start to understand who we really our as people. Also I feel that this number represents the age were we really start to understand who we are, and realize our true virtues in life.
Another thing that got my attention was the parts about personality assessments. There have been many errors in these tests, but they also help us to understand who we are as people. One example about the flaw in one of the personality tests was William Sheldon's test. He believed that you could tell so much about a person's personality by how their body was shaped. This seems quite funny to me but was probably quite serious at the time.
