Assalamualaikum to all. 
Okay, today's entry is about Psychoanalysis.  
In the world of Psychology we always heard about Sigmund Freud.
This is the earliest approach to study the personality. 
Since then, other philosopher come out with other theory base on Psychoanalysis theory. 

He was born on 6 May 1856 in Freigberg, Moravia now the town is known as Pribow, Czech Republic. He died on 23 September 1939 in London. 

Sigmund Freud

Levels of Personality
He divided the personality into 3 levels  Conscious, Preconscious, and Unconscious. The Conscious level is basically about our everyday life, something that we aware about it.
Example: When you do something that you plan to do it, so that you are conscious.
 The Preconscious level is the storehouse of memories, perceptions, and thoughts of which we are not consciously aware at the moment but that we can easily summon into consciousness.
Example: when we studying but our mind is somewhere else.
The Unconscious contains the major driving power behind all behaviors and it is the repository of forces we cannot see or control.
Example: our dream.

~perSonaLity in tHe QuRan~

when we talk about personality in the Quran, 
we must go back to the concept of SOUL.. and this soul is related to the FITRAH....

+ fitrah +
fitrah is as an inborn natural predisposition which cannot change, and which exists at birth in all human beings..

and this concept is simillar with the concept of TAbula Rasa by John Locke.
means : individuals are born without built-in mental content and that their knowledge comes from experience and perception.

we as an individual have a lot of experience in our daily lives. whether it comes from our physical actions or our intellectual..
we think and  do so many  things and these things will influence our lives unconsciously.....

in Quranic perspective, there are THREE comprehensive elements in human personality
which are:
~ psychological and 
and, in contrast; the western philosophy just focusing in physical and psychological only.  

our interaction with environment will effect our behavior and form our personality and 
it depend to us to have a good personality or not.
