Personality psychology

By definition, personality is something that is RELATIVELY ENDURING (or stable) across a lifespan, however research has shown that some situations, events and developmental changes can result in some significant changes to personality over time. Earlier this semester, you were asked to consider your own beliefs about personality stability vs. change and select a specific trait you might like to change/improve if intentional efforts could in fact bring about some degree of personality change (at least at the trait/dispositional level). In 2-4 double spaced pages, please discuss the trait you targeted for intentional change, the specific goal(s) you set for yourself and the strategies you used to attempt to fulfill this/these goals. Were you successful in meeting your goal why or why not? What do you think helped or could be helpful if you were to continue pursuing this goal? How might you sustain this change so that it is permanently integrated into your personality?
