Environment Also Exerts a Strong Influence on Personality

A child's behavior is also learned from his environment-the people and things around him. At birth, the new-born baby has no understanding of the proper way of behaving in this world. He has to learn to eat, to walk, to talk, to develop honesty and fair play which are accepted behavior patterns in his social environment. The people he comes in contact with have much to do with personality development.

The group in which we live may be classified into two-primary groups and secondary groups-each of which has to do with personality building.
