Talk on personality and character

Posted on: March 7, 2010

Today I went to a talk based on the character vs personality, and what interested me was the clear differences between the two typologies. In its simplest form:

Personality is what we present to others (external appearance) whether through pretense or real, and is brought out mostly in a crowd. How does/can the person present themselves to others. (what they wear, photos, things they own, interests)

Character is the innate reality of our nature that evolves through choices we make. It cannot be faked or hidden and it is when the person is alone or in deep stress that their true ‘character’ comes out. What the viewer or user wants out of it? e.g.: Facebook privacy options).

There are a whole load of other additional definitions and examples to these terms but for the sake of this project it is the difference between ‘person’ and ‘crowd’ in social networking that I am interested in.








Being entertained to fill in the void, or avoiding work. (abit one sided).

Having looked at installations and sculptures, it became clear that creating an installation was not my forte. But with the relevant research I can still apply the research into the designs and style of my (predicted) web pages via a website, and possible (video presentation) interaction with various new media screens.
