Term Definition
personality

a complex term from psychology which is resistant to simple definition as it is theory-dependent and contested. Generally the term refers to the predictable and unique ways in which an individual responds to the environment. Some see personality as having a causal role in behaviour whereas others see it as merely a term for that accumulation of behaviours.
