What do we know when we know a person? What we know about someone depends on how well we know them. However, you can never truly know everything about someone – even one’s own spouse or child. We often develop first impressions about individuals based on their behavior, without knowing the thinking and feelings behind that behavior. It is possible, as a psychoanalyst might state, that they don’t even know the reasons for some of their thoughts, feelings and behavior. As we get to know someone better, we become familiar with some of their personality traits and we learn how they are similar and how they are different from us. They may share experiences with us that help us to better understand how their personality was formed, though only they will ever know all of the experiences that helped to shape their personality. Essentially, the pieces of the personality puzzle begin to fall into place. Consider the activity of weight training.
