Personality is based on heredity, childhood, upbringing and experience. It could be defined as the unique organisation of characteristics which determine the typical or standard behaviour of an individual toward the outside world. Personality once formed is rather stable and less prone to change. However, a significant life change may lead to significant changes in personality.

Attitudes are the product of personal disposition and past experience.

Behaviour is the outward result of attitude and personality combined, and is adaptable.

Attitude plus behaviour results in your personality.
