The term personality has been derived from Latin word 'personae' , which means 'to speak through' .
Thus personality is used in terms of influencing others through external appearance. Sum total of ways in which an individual reacts and interacts with others.
Personality is an internalized system which includes all those aspects of a person that are inherited as well as those that are learned. These two internal aspects are interdependent and cannot be isolated.
According to Gordon All port, personality is "the dynamic organization within the individual of those psychophysical systems that determine his unique adjustments to his environment".
