To each their own…..right? Is this really the case when it comes to personality? We all have our own unique personalities that make us who we are and influence our daily lives, which might cause us to pose the question, “How much control do we have over these traits?” Furthermore, one might ask, “Is there a way we can control these characteristics or are they given to us from birth?” In order to recognize my own distinct personality traits which have contributed to the person I am today, let us take a look at my “psycho-auotbiography.” First, I will discuss a primary analysis of my personality, as it will provide a deeper understanding of the nature versus nurture model and help determine which one has had more of an effect on my personality.…show more content…

I always strive to put myself in “someone else’s shoes” so that I can treat them with kindness, love, and respect. This leads to another experience I had in a sales job. I feel that my personality traits make it very difficult for me to perform a sales job. I am so reserved and do not want to feel that I am taking advantage of anyone.

While ordinarily such characteristics can lead to success, this type of personality is probably not the best if your desire is to become an accomplished salesman.
