Family life educator/ counsellor, Flora Sackey, has explained why people do not have same characters and everyone has different opinions on issues.
Flora educated the public on e.TV Ghana’s Live Chat with Paul that everyone has temperament (s), and these temperaments explain why people behave the way they do. She described temperaments as inborn traits or qualities that influence one’s behaviour.
According to her, some people may be funny, others withdrawn, quiet, aggressive, sociable, etc. and these are all traits they are born with which affects their behaviour thus, knowing one’s temperament helps us to understand ourselves and understand other people better.
She stated, ‘’If you fill a bottle half full, one person may see it as half full, another person may see it as empty so that is the way the temperaments define our perspective in life’’.
However, temperaments can be acquired, that is, by learning other people’s ways but that will never be as original as the person’s or as your natural temperament.
