    Hi there,
    I am an English beginner and if you would kindly take time to answer my question,I would appreciate your help.
    What is the difference between "character" and characteristic" in terms of modifying people's qualities?
    thank you for your time

    Re: confusion

    Character = personality (all of it)
    Characteristic = one particular aspect, not everything
