What Is The Difference Between Personality And Character?

woman thinking, character vs. personality

All of us possess the ability to detect people's personality traits.

These stand out easily when we interact with another person.

Character, on the other hand, often takes conscious effort to notice because people don't necessarily reveal their characters all of the time.

When I was growing up, my household looked different from the idyllic families that were portrayed on the television shows I enjoyed.

They’re maintaining eye-contact and nodding slightly now and then. But are they really listening? Do they understand what you’re saying? Do they even care?

If you’ve ever asked the question, “Why is active listening so important?” it’s “conversations” like this one that answers it. You want more than a sounding board. You want real engagement.

9 Core Differences Between Love And Being In Love

differences between love and being in love FI

The difference between love and in love comes down to attraction — romantic, sexual, or both.

When you’re both craving physical intimacy with each other, the feeling is indescribable. Words can’t do it justice. 

But not everyone feels that. Not everyone can. So, it’s essential to understand what love is apart from the romance and passion. 

If you’re like most people, you want it all (and no judgment here).

But love without attraction isn’t the same as “settling.” And being “in love” is a difficult high to maintain. 

Better to focus on love. But what does that look like?
