Characteristics that are distinguishing qualities of a person
There are hundreds of personality traits that behavior scientists have developed theoretical models to describe associated patterns of behavior and personalities.
The Type A and Type B personality theory describes two common patterns of behavior, contrasting personality types — the high-strung Type A and the easy-going Type B are the most well known types. This system of classification also divides people further into Type C and D.
This theory has been controversial in the scientific and medical communities since its publication, the theory has nonetheless persisted, in the form of popular psychology circles who generally lack academic credentials, yet serve as everyday sources of oversimplified information about human behavior and personality.
Behavior and Actions
Autocratic domination, bullying, insensitivity, over control, intimidation, bullying, or self-serving practices masquerade as a form of management, but in reality are actually forms of harassment by individual who are in a position of power and authority.
There is one basic principle that applies to our behavior and actions: Some people do things for their own reasons that usually do not involve making any effort to win our approval. Other people see things differently which causes them to respond/react to situations in a way that they think is necessary to achieve the best reward for their efforts.
People who are not motivated will generate a halfhearted effort that at best produces marginal results and in worst cases creates frustration, resentment, rebellious behavior, and power struggles. A good manager is sensitive to and works hard to significantly reduce the amount of friction, tension, dissent, stress, and upset of people on his team. The reward for preventing potential misunderstandings, miscommunication, and conflict is the development of a sense of pride in the work they perform.

People interact and communicate
with us based on our behavior
towards them and our patterns of behavior in general defines how they
with us. Traits influence how we learn and what if any value we place
on utilize our intuition.
Our traits can define our perception
of what constitutes trouble. Consequently, they influence our problem
solving preferences and the solutions we create.
In addition, behavior traits are responsible for:
Motivation is the principle force behind the development of the characteristics that make our behavior acceptable and allows us to become part of a social structure. These behaviors are sometimes based on false perceptions of ourselves, our potential, and what we are capable of achieving.
After repeated exposure to untrue comments, about your abilities and potential, will cause you to accept this misinformation as being truthful. Over time this creates limitations and programs us to become insecure about our capabilities. The result is that you are likely to will avoid in engaging in any activities that might expose these insecurities.
As you seek to understand more about personality, there are important factors to keep in mind:
An individual's observable behavior does
not provide a full image of our
personality qualities. Many are hidden below the surface we project to
individuals outside of the family or peer group. To completely
a person, it is necessary to have the opportunity to spend enough time
with new acquaintances to discover their natural talents. It is
important to remember that an initial misreading can result in your
making a negative
impression. At some future occasion, you might discover that they will
be responsible for
making important decisions about you - hiring, admission to school,
judging you at a sporting event, welcoming you into a family unit, etc.
It is the differences in people that provide the strength to compensate for their weaknesses. It is the variations in people that offers a truly great opportunity to assemble a dynamic team of self-motivated people whose collaborative efforts are much better than one individual could achieve.Recommended Reading:
