Chapter 2. Can Behaviors Change?

Do you believe you can’t change your basic personality? If so, you and the experts agree. Most experts concur that a general personality type cannot be changed. Once you have developed your basic personality (between ages five and 12), your most natural psychological characteristics do not really change much.

If this is the case, you might ask, “Is it a waste of time to engage in self-improvement?” The answer is no! Even if your core characteristics stay the same, it is possible to change many things about yourself. Things you can change include your beliefs, attitudes, goals, expectations, word choices, and body language. Modestly changing any of these factors can result in your being assertive more often. When this happens, you win!
