Personality or persona? Is success in your DNA? Are "success" genes your destiny? Do people's personalities change after 30?

Personality touches upon almost every aspect of what makes people who they are. It is seen in our thoughts, emotions, close relationships and other social interactions.

"The real stars are not good actors or actresses. They’re personalities", said an american actress Jayne Mansfield.

Theories are very important in studying personality. They are used to explain and predict a wide variety of behaviors. They give us knowledge to better understand ourselves and people around us.
