The personality mask

The word personality comes from the Latin word persona. In the ancient world, a persona was a mask worn by an actor. While we tend to think of a mask as being worn to conceal one’s identity, the theatrical mask was originally used to either represent or project a specific personality trait of a character

“I believe in my mask -- The man I made up is me And I believe in my dance -- And my destiny”.

Sam Shepard

“For the adult, all the world is a stage and the personality is the mask one wears to play the assigned role.” Sam Keen
