But, it’s a fact that I unhesitatingly say,’ Yes” or No”. If I do not like something I will say it. About my thought process, I do not know what the source is. But yes, when you are growing as a child, your personality development gets affected by the people around you. Your family DNA helps your personality development the most. Growing with your family your persona gets affected the most. Also whatever you learn consciously or unconsciously from people around you also effects your personality development. Also whatever you learn from your friends remains with you. Last but not the least it also depends on you as an individual especially- on your temperament and whatever you may have picked up alongside. All in the entire atmosphere you have grown in and whatever you take in finally sets in your temperament as well thus all this forms your individual personality.”
