A STUDY OF PERSONALITY TRAITS OF B.ED STUDENTS

Personality is made up the characteristic patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that make a person unique. It arises from within the individual and remains fairly consistent throughout life. While there are many different theories of personality, the first step is to understand exactly what is meant by the term personality. The word personality itself stems from the Latin word persona, which referred to a theatrical mask work by performers in order to either project different roles or disguise their identities. It is the total quality of the individual’s behavior. Individual affects other individuals through his personality. Thus personality is manifested in his various activities. In short personality is the total quality of behavior, attitudes, interest, capacities, aptitudes and behavior patterns which are manifested in his relation with the environment.
