Abstract

The Emergence of modern concepts of personality and the study of processes involved in personality formation are relatively recent developments (14, p. 85). From these concepts and studies of personality has developed the theory that personality emerges out of the contact the individual has with his society and his culture. This theory does not discredit the importance of biological or hereditary background as an important condition or prerequisite for personality development, but it does hold that the social and cultrual forces provide the stimulus arranges the general patterns for personality formation.
