Almost all social psychologists believe that attitude are learned by ethics of a belonging society. People need to learn to motivate themselves and re-motivate as necessary. People need to give their mind the right tools.
Like other determining factors, the ethics of a particular culture potentially influences the development of personality traits.
A sound personality undeniably requires strong commitment to some set of values, principles and ethics. It is certainly the influence of the inner conscience that makes an individual behave well and justly with his fellow beings no matter how knowledgeable and powerful he might be.
The virtues of justice and humanity are not readily practiced by one and all. Justice is a particular and relative rather than an absolute concept. There is no such thing as less or more just. One may be either just or unjust. Humility is also not easy to practice. It requires sacrifice of the self in terms of credit, recognition, appreciation, merit and even self-satisfaction.
In this paper, I endeavour to explicate the variegated values that make up an individual’s personality and the significance of ethics in accomplishing this goal.
