Research indicates that the characteristics we are born with have much
more influence on our personality and development than any experiences
we may have in our life.
Which do you consider to be the major influence?
The character of people forms since birthday till their death. There
can be different influences can affect on future character of the
Firstly, when the human born he lives with his family, while baby
little, only family influence on his future character, everything what
make baby crying breaking his character. After, babe begin go to
school or kindergarten influence can be occurred by classmates,
friends, teachers. For instance, bad friends can eventually change
character of the good pupils. On other hand good friends makes human
more friendly, influence on study for the better side.
Secondly, large influence can be occurred due the local mentality. It
doesn’t matter what character was established on born, anyway
mentality of people around will affect on humans character. For
example, human will always try to be within character of most people,
who live around him, with a goal not be mentioned and convicted.
Another one serious reason, which can influence on humans character is
another one who she or he love. As known, many things was made due of
strong passion to be with his lover, such as earning money, overcome
long distance, change character to be more appropriate for him or her,
to be more friendly, gentle, good and etc.
Overall, in my opinion major influence on our character is – our life.
