Lay theories of personality are described as unchanging yet can be influenced by nature, upbringing, genetics and one’s environment. Lay theory of personality declares a person expose in certain instances and or scenarios, would trigger a response from that individual which would deem typically out of character or out of the ordinary for that person. Personality is referred to as an activation to one’s decision making and behavior. Personality represents one’s decision making, values and so on that impacts implementations to assure a satisfying life. An example of this would one living by phrases such as” the early bird gets the worm” or “work hard, play hard”.

Scientific theories of personality have various descriptions of what personality is or should be and how it relates to prediction and control. Sigmund Freud’s theory of personality {1923} described that of an “unconscious mind, or a pool of thoughts, impulses, recollections, and emotions, which one is consciously unaware. Freud broke his personality theories into three sections. One, Freud claimed was the initial personality component, (id or Innate desire) which consists of genetic components present at birth. (ex: the desire to be pleasured by indulgence/enjoyment.) Also, by early experiences after birth, into the initial years of life; such as an infant/ toddler who experienced neglect or over protection may outcome to be an obsessed/compulsive adult. (Freud). The next section of personality. Described by Freud (1923) was the Ego of personality, known as the decision-making component, derives as an arbitrator between the unrealistic innate desires and the external real world. The Ego of personality often compromises to avoid conflict and consequences. Freud deemed the last section of personality is the Super Ego, noted as the conscience, diminishing the Ego’s plans by triggering feelings of guilt and remorse to one’s engagement in unrealistic desires.

The definition of personality in psychology is referred to an individual that has differences in characteristics in patter of the way they think, feel and behave. Personalities are researched in different ways for example scientific theories and lay theories. Lay theories are theories that people use in their everyday lives, a reflection on beliefs of people that live in each given culture or environment. They use what they developed and used theories to help them in understanding and respond to a social world. An example would be “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” which means that it can be difficult to get people to try new ways of doing things, because they have a certain pattern they have followed for a long time. As for a scientific theory that is being tested and studied through scientific observations and has proven evidence. “Typically, it’s a claim about the relationship between various facts; a way of providing a concise explanation for what’s been observed” (Falk, 2018). An example of scientific theory is Freuds psychodynamic theory in the approach that includes the theory of psychology and research on how the human functions based on the interaction of what drives within an individual’s unconsciousness and the difference in structures in their personalities. Freud collected for his theories were done during therapy which would treat both depression and anxiety disorders. Psychodynamic theory states that certain events in a child’s life which has influenced an adult’s life that shapes their personalities.
