Purpose: Personality is defined in your textbook as the unique, relatively enduring internal and external aspects of a personâ€™s character that influence behavior in different situations. Skinner believed people are primarily products of learning, shaped more by external variables than genetic factors. Self-Control to him meant the ability to exert control over the variables that determine our behavior. The purpose of this personality project is to measure self-control and analyze on how your levels of self-control have impacted your personality development.
