Over the past semester, I found the unit on personality to be the most interesting. I myself, am a people person, therefore I love being around different people and their personalities. Reflecting on myself, I tend to associate with people who have similar personalities to me. These people are outgoing, speak their mind, spontaneous and have a good sense of humor. The reason I enjoyed this chapter so much was because it was very interesting to see how our personalities affect one's lifestyle. I also found it very interesting to learn that how someone is raised can greatly alter their personality causing them to be reserved or extraverted. Also, before this chapter, I never really thought that genetics can play a large role in how someone's personality is perceived. Something else from this unit that I thought was the strangest was learning about ectomorphs, mesomorphs and endomorphs. After learning about how your body type can affect your personality I thought of people I knew, and there body types and could see a connection. I will remember the concepts from the personality unit five years from now because I found it interesting to learn more about my own personality and how it has affected who I am today.
Learning about yourself in class!
