BEHAVIOR & PERSONALITY
Most people believe that personality determines how individuals act, and it's very difficult to shake that belief. Personality testing is widely used in recruiting, with the underlying assumption that it will predict how people will behave in a job, and therefore will determine their performance. But if personality were the key to performance, then how can you explain the success of three people with very different personalities? A critical difference between behavior and personality is that your personality is essentially fixed at an early age and after that you can't really change it.
