The main factors that shape a person’s personality is environment. Person’s characteristic is built since they were born. How their parents take care of them, how their parents give attention to them, how their parents give explanation about worldview when they begin to mature and in what kind environment they grow up. All of that are several factors that influence person’s characteristic. We can determine someone characteristic by seeing their daily behavior, their attitude to other people and their habit. Usually, someone characteristic is formed when they are 4 or 5 years, however their characteristic still can be changed according to the environment and people around them. The more mature person, the actual characteristic will emerge and rub off on them.

Every person, in itself must have two kind characteristics, good characteristic and bad characteristic. It is impossible if someone only has good characteristic without bad characteristic or only has bad characteristic without good characteristic. If one child grow up in a family which is full of affection and good environment, so that child also will grow up become someone who is jolly, low levels of emotional and loving. However, if one child grow up in a family which is chaos, no affection, no attention from the parents, so that child will grow up become someone with high levels of emotional, do not care with other people, hostile and stubborn. So, the conclusion from above statement is parents behavior to their child and the environment are the most important factors in shaping the characteristic of a child.

Now, we will see impact that will be appear from the differences of characteristic in every people. Sometimes we see between two person or more, mismatches is often and then at the end quarrel will be happen. That problem might be caused of the difference characteristic which is owned in every people. Different character causes someone favorite and someone behavior is different from one to another. This is easy for quarrel to happen. We will take the easiest example for this statement, a couple of brother and sister often to fight when they are together although they are fighting for a small problem. That problem can be caused because that brother and sister have different characteristic. As we already discussed that siblings or blood relationship cannot guarantee for a couple of brother and sister will have the same characteristic. However it does not mean that a couple of people who have different characteristic will always fighting. A couple of people who have different characteristic also can live together such as a couple of husband and wife. They can live together although their characteristic is different, that is because they want to accept surplus and shortage which is owned by their couple.

Until now, there are still many of people who do not understand about the differences between characteristic and nature. Many people assume that characteristic is just the same with nature. Characteristics are typical of visible personality of the nature and character of that person. Example; people with firm attitude in the point of view and posture will stubborn. That example makes us easier to understand the meaning of nature. Many people said that characteristic is permanent whereas nature is not permanent or can be changed. Another example for that statement, there is someone who has bad habit such as lying. Bad habit is not characteristic but nature. The nature of lying can be changed, it depends on desire from that person whether he or she want changed or not and then support from people around him or her.

Now we will discuss about relationship between characteristic and our daily activities. Maybe we never realize if our characteristic has a big affect for our life. Without our awareness, every of our action or activity that we do is related with our characteristic. We will take someone simple characteristic for example. There are some people who like to go to crowded place and meet many people or there are also some people who would rather in be in a quiet place or away from the crowds. People who like crowded will go to place such as mall, cafe, or amusement park that many people visited. That kind of place will give satisfied or happiness for them like crowded place and meet may people. For some people who like quiet place, maybe they will go to the place such as library or they will go to remote place such as villages that there are still less populated. Another example for people characteristic is there are some people who are easy to interact or communicate with many people although they just know them for a while. There are also some people who are difficult to interact or communicate with other people although they just know for a while or already meet before. For them who easy to interact or communicate, maybe they are working as a presenter, Manager of Human Resources or other job which is related with communication. For them who difficult to interact or communicate is more suitable if they are working as an accountant or financer which is a job without so many interaction or communication with many people. From those statement and examples, we can make conclusion that there many aspects of our life which is have related with our characteristic and sometimes we are not aware with that.
