Personality is someone’s specific way of thinking, feeling and acting. Each person has his own special type of thinking that affects the way he or she perceives the outside events and individuals. People react or behave depending on the interpretation they have about others.

Adjectives are one of the four major word classes along with nouns, verbs and adverbs. They modify, describe and give more information about features and qualities of people, animals, places, situations and objects.
Nouns are the largest word class. They refer to people, places, animals, objects, events, substance or quality.
