  1. There are physiological prerequisites for the development of certain qualities – the type and structure of the nervous system according to various indicators, body type, lack/presence of musical hearing, etc. Some of them can be changed, for example, hearing develops, some can only be spoiled by and large – this applies to the properties of nervous tissue.

    These physiological prerequisites can be defined by the word “temperament”.

    A person's reaction to stimuli depends on temperament, which for a person with one structure can become a terrible trauma in the development process, while for another it can pass more or less normally. And vice versa – that for one a wonderful soil for development, then for the other a boring and unproductive environment.

    Thus, at the junction of innate prerequisites and life circumstances, a person's personality is formed.

  2. If we don't talk about character, habits, upbringing, etc. Take it all away – what's left is you. Look inside yourself and find the Self. That's what you're here for – seize the moment!

  3. Personality formation is influenced by both external and internal factors.�

    External – this is, first of all, education, and this includes both parental education and the influence of society. It is worth admitting that the formation of your ” I ” is very much influenced by this factor. In addition, there are objective natural conditions that set a certain framework, help or hinder the development of personality, the formation of mentality. Internal factors include the biological characteristics of the body and your own desire for development.�

    The ratio of these or other factors varies greatly from person to person, it is almost impossible to say on whom any of the above had a greater impact. Unless your own feelings will help to find out 🙂

  4. Children deprived of human upbringing (raised by animals) up to 3.5 years of age “practically cannot learn human language, walk straight, and communicate meaningfully with other people, even though they spent years later in the society of people where they received enough care. … Children raised by animals exhibit (within the limits of human physical capabilities) the behavior typical of their foster parents” wikipedia.org.

    So from the “original, internal” there is an opportunity to learn the behavior of animals and humans. The rest is a product of upbringing and only if you have it – your own thoughts.

    This, by the way, most likely means that our children can be raised much more developed than we are, we just do not know these methods of education.

  5. Well, from the point of view of psychology ,the” I ” is formed in a child about the age of three, before that he identifies with the world as a whole and only with the expansion of his knowledge about himself and the world does he begin to understand that he is a separate being. The process doesn't stop there, of course. Then self-awareness gradually appears, and the child's “I” develops first through comparing oneself with others, and then through self-esteem. Self-identity and reflection appear. By the end of puberty, all the components of consciousness are developing, but of course the development of the “I”does not stop there. All important events in adult life somehow reflect on our ” I ” and force us to reconsider our attitude to ourselves.

    So it's a product of development. You can read J. S. Cohn's “The Discovery of the Self” or Carl Rogers ' “Becoming a Person”on this topic.

  6. Yes, the full answer is given in the Vedic scriptures. The individual soul is of the same eternal nature as the Lord Himself. And the soul is originally a particle of the Absolute Lord, who is like the ocean. And the soul is a drop of this Ocean, qualitatively similar to God, but quantitatively, an infinitesimal particle.

  7. Our ” ia ” is a product of the interaction of genetic inheritance, family upbringing and the prevailing moral principles in society. And the first factor is more important than the rest together.

  8. What is a stream? Is it water or earth? If there is no water, there will be no stream. If there is no land, there will be no stream. If we change the water composition, the stream will be different. If we dig a channel in the ground or widen the channel, the stream will also be different. So is consciousness. Upbringing affects consciousness, and the material basis, the structure of the brain, also affects consciousness.The ” I ” never stands still, because everything that happens inside the universe is a process.”I” is also a process. Today I like one thing, tomorrow I like another. Today I want something, tomorrow I don't want it anymore. Today you hate, tomorrow you love. Yesterday's Я ” I ” is no longer there, the future�”I” is not yet there. There is only the present. You can say something about it. The present ” I ” can be represented as the point of convergence of all previous processes in the universe. For example, ” I ” can be defined by the explosions of various supernovae in remote locations in the universe. As a result of these explosions in the past, substances were formed (for example, iron and gold), which eventually hit the ground, then into the body, and began to affect the physical and mental state, change the “I”. The physical inner foundation of consciousness is constantly changing. It is impossible to say anything reliable about the non-material basis, since the non-material does not exist in a material form, and words are the consequences of material processes. Just like trying to explain in words to a person who is blind from birth what the color red is. For him, the color red does not exist, because he cannot perceive it. Similarly, for a person, the non-material basis of consciousness does not exist until he perceives it.
