#10: Every Person Ever Born has a Personality

Some people’s personalities are so compelling that they command attention.” Laura Linney

It’s true! Some people stand out while others are a quiet presence in the world.

“Everyone shines, given the right lighting.” Susan Cain

For some personalities, the lighting is more subdued, but just as piercing.

Today’s post finishes out the series of 10 Things You Need to Know About Personalities.


Every person born has a personality. For those who believe in the Divine Creator, people were made in His image, and He doesn’t make junk. That’s why I know everyone has a personality and each of us has value and is wonderful no matter what personality we are blessed with. Whether you are one of the extroverted gems (sanguine or choleric) or are more of an introverted treasure (melancholy or phlegmatic), YOU  ROCK!

Walt Disney, whether he actually understood the temperaments or just had a innate sense about them, used them as a tool to create the memorable characters that fill his whimsical kingdom: “I try to build a full personality for each of our cartoon characters–to make them personalities.”

The Personalities are not intended to be labels used in the negative sense we see labels today, however, personalities are both specific and broad enough to help us understand ourselves and others better. Specific because people fall into similar categories (like the outgoing extroverts and the quiet introverts) and broad because no two personalities are the same ie, no two choleric people are the same even though they may have commonalities.

Everyone has a personality. Think about that the next time you hear someone say, “That person has no personality what so ever.” You won’t fall into that trap because YOU know different. Everyone has a personality, and each personality is unique and wonderful in its own way.
