“A fully developed personality is not something we’re born with. Yes, we come into this world with certain genetic traits pushing us in one direction or another, and yes, our dispositions may display certain tendencies (i.e., a quick temper or a ready laugh). However, I believe that our personalities are meant to be developed over time, and that we have a great deal of control over that development. We have the ability to nurture elements of our personality. We can teach ourselves to adapt to a range of situations and relationships. We can change if we choose to. We can envision the person we want to be and we can become that person.”
Carolyn J. Gable, in “Everything I know as a CEO I Learned as a Waitress”
