The LDOCE defines character and personality as follows:
- Character: the particular combination of qualities that makes someone a particular type of person
- Personality: someone’s character, especially the way they behave towards other people
My only takeaway from these is that personality may be an aspect of character but not vice versa.
So what are the differences between character and personality? Which categories do traits like generosity, kindness, rashness, sensibility, humorousness, persuasiveness, charisma belong to. Illustrative examples would be appreciated.
