Are Personality and Character Overrated?

In the book Situations Matter: Understanding How Context Transforms Your World Tufts University psychologist Sam Sommers  gives us a more profound understanding of not only ourselves but also the people in our lives and the interpersonal dynamics that drive our decision making and our world.  Sommers points to the notion that personality and character are overrated and that what really impacts our lives are the situations, people and opportunities that come our way.
