The integrated personality

by Indra Sen


There is a necessary correlation between the personality we have and the world we live in and enjoy. After all, the world in which I live is the one that my capabilities of perception, sympathy and action create or discover for me. This is true of an individual, a society and an age.

The present-day world is characterised as a world of conflict and tension. And do we not talk of the present personality too as a split personality? What a correspondence!

If we now want to create a world of collaboration and unity, will it not be necessary to seek and achieve an integrated personality? This is a most vital issue today when we have learned to recognize integrated personality as the ideal of education as well as culture.
