Personality refers to the combination of qualities, attitude, and behavior, that makes a person distinct from others. Character refers to a set of moral and mental qualities and beliefs, that makes a person different from others.
"The road to success and the road to failure are almost exactly the same." -- Colin R. Davis
By nature, we tend to speak our own language. Whatever makes us feel loved is what we do for the other person. But if it is not his/her language, it will not mean to them what it means to us. - Gary Chapman, Things I wish I knew before I got married
The character and personality of a person do seem to be so related to each other. They both play a great role in identifying a person. How a person behaves? How useful he is for society? Is he a good person or a bad person?
To answer these questions, we notice the character and personality of a person. Yet these both seem to be one in a broader way, but when we study deeper, then we find that they are quite different from each other.
So, let's know in this post that what are the main differences between them both.

• It keeps on changing with time and situation.
• It is about his public appearance. Its focus is on the outer world.
• It is a way of telling society about yourself.
Verbal communication is essential in order to understand what is going on inside other people. If they do not tell us their thoughts, their feelings, and their experiences, we are left to guess. - Dr. Gary Chapman, Now You're Speaking My Language

The MBTI, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator have suggested that there are 16 personalities. These personalities differ from each other. However, the ENFP personality type is the so-called The Champion of all personalities, no matter how common it is. ENFP is regarded as Extraverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Perceiving.
Personality tests can bring you a handful of insights into who you are and how others perceive you. And to know which personality are you may even help you in your daily life.
If you are an ENFP personality, you are often described as enthusiastic, charismatic, and creative. You are charming, energetic, and independent. You give your best effort in situations where you have the utmost freedom to be creative and innovative. However, you tend to overthink and stress easily.

Personalities are what form us as a person and what sets us apart from other individuals. In late 1976, cardiologists Friedman and Rosenman discovered Type A personality behavior by mere accident after realizing that their waiting-room chairs were in a much-needed help.
When the chairs were being handled by an upholsterer, he could not help but notice that the chairs were worn out unusually. Most patients wait patiently, but the cardiac patients always seemed unable to sit calmly and tended to worn out the chairs' arms. The cardiologists discarded this matter at that time, only to begin their formal research five years later.
Originally, Friedman and Rosenman called it ‘Type A personality’, it is now regarded as a set of behavioral responses known as Type A Behavior Pattern.
Type A Behavior Pattern:
Individuals with type, A personality is known to be competitive and self-critical. They tend to feel unaccomplished and lack a sense of joy in their efforts to strive towards their goals. Type A individuals are tense, angry, and easily overreact. It is believed that they also tend to have high blood pressure.
Type A individuals are easy culprits of anger or hostility, which may or may not be expressed overtly. These individuals see the flaws in others; they tend to display anger, envy, and lack compassion. This behavior, when expressed openly, tends to progress into bullying. Hostility is believed to be the main factor linked to heart disease.
#3 Time Urgency:
This type of personality has a constant sense of urgency. Type A Individuals always tend to seem to be in a constant struggle against the clock. Type A personalities are impatient, they schedule commitments too tightly, and tend to take up more than one thing at a time.
