"Personality is the sum-total of all the biologically innate dispositions, impulses, tendencies, appetites, and instincts of the individual, and the acquired dispositions and tendencies--acquired by experience." -- Morton Prince, The Unconscous, 1929, p.532

"Personality is the dynamic organization within the individual of those psycholophysical systems that determine his [sic.] unique adjustments to his [sic.] environment." -- Gordon W. Allport

Personality is "the sum of activities that can be discovered by actual observatin over a long enough period of time to give reliable information." -- John B. Watson, Behaviorism, 1930

Personality is "the most adequate conceptualization of a person's behavior in all its detail that the scientist can give at a moment of time." David McClelland, 1951, p.69.

"Personality is a more or less enduring organization of forces within the individual associated with a complex of fairly consistent attitudes, values, and modes of perception which account, in part, for the Individual's consistency of behavior" -- Victor Barnouw, Culture and Personality, 1985, p. 8 (modified from The Authoritarian Personality, Theodoro W. Adorno et al, 1950)
