Question and answer
how do traits stay the same from infancy through adulthood?
Basically you have biological traits that are genetic...they are from your genes and DNA. They last from birth to death because they are fundamental to your physiological make-up. [ They stay the same because they are permanent. Personality or character traits are more often chosen to be "This is how I behave." Chosen partly because "This is the way I want to be as a person" and partly because "This is the way I want other people to see me." Yet these traits, too, even though chosen, last a long time, perhaps throughout one's life time, because once displayed they are reinforced by the
social setting and so we condtinue to keep them for their positive social values. Here's a list of just a few of the many such traits you yourself can Google: humble - brave - courageous - serious - funny - humorous - sad - resourceful - stubborn - loyal - gullible - handsome - caring - carefree - selfish - unselfish - self-confident - generous - respectful - considerate - imaginative - inventive - creative - independent - studious - intelligent - honest - mischievous - friendly Such traits can be chosen for short or long term usage, used certain social circumstances and not others, discarded and later picked up again, etc. Much of this has to do with "psychology of use," that what we do (behavior) is useful in getting us something, making sdomething happen, results, a pay-off. This is opposed to the idea that we "have" or "own" or are "possessed by" our behaviors (such as our traits. Thus we ARE our traits, chosen for what they can do for us...we don't "have" traits. ]
