We think we should be improving certain parts of our personality, while certain character traits are to be left intact. This division of personality traits creates confusion and subconscious bias.
Character traits are thought to be flexible through effort, and the personality is traditionally regarded as inherited or rigid. However, it is wrongly assumed that character change is feasible and personality is fixed.
New research reveals that whether a person’s personality transforms or the extent to which it changes, has its roots in their motivation to change, and the steps they take, something known as Volitional Personality Change.
An extensive 2021 study suggests that both personality and character can be changed with(substantial) effort. That brings the question of whether we would want to change our core self or not.
Our inability to change might just be mental inertia and auto-suggestion, as it is seen in various studies that both character and personality can be changed rapidly and intentionally, something thought of as improbable before.
The big five personality traits: Conscientiousness, openness, agreeableness, extraversion and emotional stability, serve as a psychological foundation in developing or hindering character traits like kindness or forgiveness.
Various studies on the correlation of goals and one’s personality conclude that they are working in tandem, greatly affecting one another.
This makes it possible to change our goals(or adopt specific goals) in order to alter our personality.
We need to update our thinking on what it takes to change our personality traits, giving up on the myth of a morally inflexible personality set in stone.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
