If we speak about the people around us, we use to describe their personality and attitude. This things make us different from each other and sometimes bind us together. Some are engaging and some are otherwise irritating. What could be the possible cause of an attitude? How does personality and attitude develops?

Hi myzhian! I think there are several things that develop personality and attitude. The way are raised can influence attitude and personality in the early years but later this is shaped by personal experiences. I have recently read that some of this is also influenced by genetics which I find very interesting. They did say that environment and experience influence the way that the genetic traits are shaped though.

Is there a like button in mylot? Anyways I completely agree with you. The major factor that can affect who we are our attitude and personality is our environment the people involve in it and the experiences we had as we aged.

you are absolutely right jenInYN. Actually attitude originates from what you call genetic inheritance and also with traits manifestation from the family and largely from the society! Some of this attitudes are base on behavior that sometimes it is hard to control within a community or even for ourselves. The out come of these is what you call as the Characteristics,and this is the main factor being judge by the people around to identify your personality! The judgement of people sometimes may vary from your own and this is what you call inner-self,nobody knows you but only you alone, Or simply it is our own individuality.

Attitude and Personality develops when we were young. Our nature and how we nurture it affects a lot. Our childhood experiences affects our adult life. If we were treated nicely and being loved when we were young, chances are our attitude and our personality will be loved by others.

hi, childhood experiences have this great effect with our attitude, and it is made more concrete with some environmental factors that. Attitude is also a mental expression through certain actions, and you call it as the behavior, and this behavior will reflects on your personality.

Attitude -- it depends on experiences we get from others. some people succeed in whatever they do and so fail in whatever they do. some want more some are happy with whatever it given. based on this positive or negative attitude is formed. Also much depends on people with whom we react--when we interact with our close ones we behave differently. Personality -- some are lucky to be born in a good family which encourages and some are not. based on this our personality is formed--some are liked by others--family, people around us matter a lot in this regard.

hello ravisivan, what you have said is really right.Attitude is the fruit of our experiences with the society we live in and this factors varies on how we deal depending on the type of person we are interacting with.And personality emerges from our innocence developing while understanding what the world has brought for us and how we perceive and adjust in nature.

personality is who you are biggest part is character! attitude is behaviour, biggest part is how we are raised and educated but also character plays a role. What we show is mostly a combination of all of it plus the "need" to fit into society.. which means many of us are wearing a mask. It's hard to be oneself and if mostly it's not appreciated by society at all.

hi, thank you for your response. And i agree with you that personality and attitudes comes with your character. An we are all unique when it comes with this matter, and that we need to go with the flow of the society sometimes to feel that we belong in it.

I believe the personality and attitude of every individual is coming from the environment that he/she belongs. And of course on how the parents have disciplined the child as well if they were given ideas about good moral values and right conduct.

The development of personality and attitude are the same, our personality is what our attitude usually is, though attitude is situational. It develops based on our brain's interpretations of what happens to and around us from the day we are born. It is not fully understood, but recurring events and how we perceive them judge who we are. So, if you are repeatedly praised for doing well in school, you perceive that action as something good, and strive subconsciously to do it well, but if you are constantly admonished for not doing good enough, you may come to believe you are not good at anything. Does that make sense?

It does tend to happen slowly and gradually through the environment we live in, where it does twist our personality. A lot of the worst behaviors are sadly something that is learned. Of course, on the bridge side, some of the more better behaviors are also learned. It tends to get shaped in a way during the early stages of life. Of course, that is not the only time where personality and environment is shaped. Our attitudes can be altered at any stage slightly. There are sometimes where a good shock, for better or for worse, will have altering affects. There are just really many times where many experiences shape a lot of us. Sometimes an attitude is shaped in some of the more obnoxious ways to say the very least. I know that I personally, have had some experiences that have shaped my attitude and personality for both better or for worse at various points in my life. I’m not completely one hundred percent at ease as well.

I think maybe the environment around the people may affect the personablity and attitude toward life.I think this would be mainly the reasons.If the people was educated by a positive attitude than he must be also such kind of people.
