    Can you say: forge your personality?

    Hi everyone,
    can you say: You don't have the chance to forge your personality that way?

    I am not sure about this!

    Thanx for your help!!!!

    I've heard it said, but it's not very common.

    I think it's normally used in the past and in the passive.

    "His personality was forged in an atmosphere of hatred and violence."
