PERSONA

November 12th, 2007

Persona, in psychoanalytical sense can be defined as a mask, a facade to satisfy the demands of a situation or the environment not revealing inner personality of an individual. Therefore people are able to select their own appearance and behaviour in order to create a desired impression on others. People`s second personality within themselves is speaking instead of them and it`s pretending.

To make a positive impression on people, especially on strangers has become a socially accepted behavioural pattern and it seems, that people are satisfied with that.

Who are we, anyway? Why such a strong desire to be who we are not in real? Is a social risk that is perceived or either an ego risk?

I believe, there is absolutely no doubt that people are wearing a mask.
