The character of each person is formed from birth. From the very first months of his life, it is very important for a person to communicate with people around him. With his behavior and actions, the child begins to imitate his immediate environment. From 2 to 10 years, children are very susceptible to any influence from the outside, they easily adopt new experiences, adults greatly influence the child in their own words and actions.
It is interesting that at first, kindness or selfishness, sociability or isolation, indifference or willingness to help begin to emerge in a person. These character traits are born even before the child goes to school.
Then other character traits begin to take shape, namely laziness or hard work, responsibility or irresponsibility. Quite a lot of importance on the development of certain character traits of a child is affected by adults. In elementary school, children begin to live a full social life, actively communicate with peers, at this time the basic models of communication with people are laid. The child begins to be compared with other children, successes or failures at school begin to leave their mark on the character of the child. Already in adolescence, boys and girls try themselves in new activities, discover new things for themselves, shape their will. During this period, basic moral values and a basic worldview have already been formed. By the end of school, the main character traits have already been formed. But a person does not stand still and develops all his life, therefore the character of a person also undergoes changes throughout his life. Studying, working, relationships with the opposite sex very much affect people, affect their mood.
Adults are able to “build” their own character. They are engaged in the analysis of their actions and feelings. If a person does not like something in his character, then he tries to change himself. Such people achieve a lot in life, unlike people who do not want to change anything.
A significant role in the development of character is exerted by the actions of the inner circle of people, people’s judgments about life, read literature, popular media images, and the ideology of society.
For the successful formation of the character of people, it is necessary to create high-quality educational institutions and increase the role of the family in society.
