According to the American Psychological Association:

Personality refers to individual  differences in characteristic patterns of thinking, feeling, and  behaving. The study of personality focuses on two broad areas: One is  understanding individual differences in particular personality  characteristics, such as sociability or irritability. The other is  understanding how the various parts of a person come together as a  whole. (para 1)

In this course, you will explore seven well-known models that  explain the development of personality. However, you probably already  have some ideas and opinions about how personalities develop based on  your prior learning and life experiences. This first assignment is meant  to provide you with a baseline of your thinking about personality that  you can compare and contrast to the theories we will be studying. This  paper will also be integrated into a section of your final assignment.

This  is not a research paper; that will come later. In this assignment, you  will reflect on your current assumptions defining personality as they  relate to your understanding of your own behaviors. Describe your  personality, including your typical style, your main traits, the way you  interact with others, and how you handle stress. Explain what it is  that makes you uniquely “you,” and how you think you became the person  you are today. Describe the social and/or psychological factors you can  point to that help support your explanation as well as any genetic  factors you believe affect your unique personality.
