Personality can be defined as a dynamic and organized set of characteristics possessed by a person that uniquely influences his or her cognitions, emotions, interpersonal orientations, motivations, and behaviors in various situations.

I sometimes wonder if certain personalities are destined for greatness because of their specific cognitions, emotions, interpersonal orientations, motivations and behaviors in various situations.

It would stand to reason that some personalities would be destined for the opposite. I mean, individually you could lack cognition, but compensate for it with winning behavior, or have terrible interpersonal skills but stellar emotional control. I think we all know people who's motivations seem to be the only thing that drive them, but they seem to be cognitively astute people; offset personality skill sets.

But what if you sucked at all of them?

Imagine someone who couldn't grasp concrete ideas, had poor emotional management, expected interpersonal relationships to happen without effort, suffered from an unmotivated attitude and behaved abhorrently whenever they felt slighted.

Sounds like some co-workers I've had in the past :/
