    Technically we could say that there is no such thing as personality since it comes from the term "persona" meaning mask. People might where many different "masks" in their eyes, but those "masks" still make up apart of who they are.

    Then again we could say that there is such thing as personality for the same reasons we say it exists.

    Does not understand why all these threads must be resurrected...

    If you read up on personality psychology vs sociology... you'll see that personality contributes to only 10-30% of our actions... the rest is situationally determined. But that small percentage is still something. And knowing personality and context together we can better predict behaviour than just looking at situational determinants alone.

    yup yup
    transcend personality in favor of individuality
    and then realize you don't even have that (but the important thing is to keep learning, growing, and challenging yourself)
    life is good.

    I don't agree with that guy. I think that there IS something like personality, I'm just not sure if everybody has one. I know some people who look like they might be like zombies or something, because they're just nothing but walking and talking bodies that don't want anything.
