1) DISCUSSION POST
As we study human development, our focus turns to change and stability. Do peopleâ€™s personalities ever really change? Or are we destined to make similar choices throughout our lives?
- Read Invisibilia: Is Your Personality Fixed, Or Can You Change Who You Are? by Alix Spiegel (2016). This article explores the question through the dramatic example of a man in prison for a heinous crime.
- Pick one positionâ€”either stability or changeâ€”and provide a rationale for your choice. You can also learn more about personality on page 3.12 in Chapter 3 of our webtext.
2) PEER REVIEW #2 (SENGPHET)
Change. The way a person acts and behaves are in influenced by their mindset. I believe most people are products of their environment. The way a person was raised, by who they were raised and where they were raised are all apart of their environment and plays a role in their personality. As a persons environment changes so does their personality. As people get older they will be able to change their environment as well as their personality. Another theory I believe that plays a roll in a fixed personality or change is medication and alcohol. These two things can alter a persons mindset so that you get a different person .
3) PEER REVIEW #2 (JACOB)
I believe that you can change to a certain extent. Your personality is what defines you. It is what makes you unique. It is capable of being changed, but I do not believe that you can change it completely. We are all products of our environment. Yes, we can change what type of environment we are in, but I believe some of our personality traits can not be changed. You adapt to different situations and different environments, but you can not completely change how you act.
