Personality is a result of natural as well as environmental exposure that an individual gets and his or her genetic makeup. Most of the scholars believe that the process of socialization (environmental exposure) plays the most important role in shaping an individual’s personality. Well known ethicist and academician Dr. Robert Rue also believes that personality is nothing but an outcome of the kind of family upbringing a child has and the kind of social environment he or she has been surrounded by since childhood (Rue, Bob 2001, pp 14).
For example, a child born in a community or family that is very interactive and outgoing is always very extrovert. This is due to the fact that the child right from his or her childhood is taught to voice his or her opinion and put forward his or her thoughts. Moreover, a child born in a community that values relationships will always hold relationship as his or her priority.
