Who would have known? This confirms to me that if all of the fields work together, we can get more done and find out more then we ever imagined. The basis of the anthropological works formed the basis for the idea of a national character. A national character refers to the idea that each culture has a specific personality type, and that each member of that culture embodies it and shares some aspects of it.

The Anthropological Perspective states that the foundations of personality are already set and determined by each culture’s unique cultural traits.
