Can You Really Change Your Personality?
Whether you’re looking to change your personality to manage a mental health condition or personality disorder, or you’d just like to change some aspects of who you are, you may be wondering if it’s possible.
Personality is complex, and there is a huge mental health stigma in regards to personality disorders and behavioural struggles that may add a certain pressure to want to change (although this desire to change should not be based on appeasing the judgements and prejudices of others, but should instead come from a place of wanting to change for the sake of one’s own well-being).
This post will delve into what we know about personality, as well as whether it is possible to change it — this conglomeration of habits, preferences, and styles that we tend to feel is unshakeably who we are.
