~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.
