LASA 2: Exploring Personality Theories

When it comes to The Five Factor Model of Personality it’s hard for me to tell if I was born with Extroversion of it was learned.

I can’t say that I was born with a neurotic personality. I feel I am still learning in this area because I am not a calm or stable person. My mood is always all over the place and I never seem to know why. I am always feeling on edge. Lastly, I had to learn to be open. I use to think it was my way or no way. However, that didn’t lead me anywhere but lonely. I quickly realized no one wants to hang around a know-it-all. I only wanted to do things that I was most familiar with and felt comfortable doing and it got pretty boring, pretty fast. I think personality traits are primarily environmental. People can be born to have a great personality, however, as your life progresses, you either hold on to whom you are or you simply succumb to the world and pick up traits that mold you into who you are in your adult life....
