Teleological Approach To Personality

by EOD

This is just a summary…

In a relativist point of view, personality development varies from culture to culture, from place to place. So does the development of a unique Filipino personality. On the other hand, the Teleological Approach is in lieu of universalism. Personality development is greatly correlated with consequentialism (individuals are consquentialists in nature). Consequences motivate individuals to change or alter their attitudes. This is because people in general are goal-oriented. They always expect reciprocation and consequences.

This approach can be used as another spectrum in viewing the Filipino personality as a whole. This is because their consequence-oriented personality can be attributed to the fact that 83% of the them are Roman Catholics. It is noted that religion is a vital influence to people’s lives. And it is the religion that affirms consequentialism (wherein it teaches the people to do good so that they will be blessed in return, doing the other way means hell and the likes). Its influence to the people affects the intensity of consequentialism as a prime motivating factor in personality development. But we have to take into consideration that religion is just a contributing factor. Consequentialism alone is a very important variable in studying personality. Here, we can conclude that the concept of consequentialism is universal.
