Quick Reference

An individual's behaviour that is determined by the role of the person, and the person's perception of how he or she should behave in particular environmental situations. It is rarely a valid indicator of the psychological core of an individual's personality. For example, an athlete may play the role of a braggart, but in truth be rather insecure.
