Do you have a "strong" personality? What does that mean to you?

I am having a disagreement with someone over what having a “strong personality” means.

He thinks it means someone who is socially aggressive and pushes themselves on other people and gets their way by the power of obnoxiousness.

I think it means someone who is consistent over time & displays integrity through word & action in the face of opposition.

Do you think either of these definitions makes more sense than the other one? If you described someone as having a “strong personality,” what would you mean by it?

thanks, well, I know what I think, but he and I both have strong opinions so we generally end up agreeing to disagree, which is diplomatic but of course terribly inconclusive…..I was very curious what others would think about it and the responses are so interesting !!!

I agree with your choice of the word ¬®forceful¬® to replace “strong.”

“Forceful” is a more specific word, limited to a more exact meaning. “Strong” is a many-dimensioned word, full of complex implications, but it has a positive connotation, whereas “forceful” has a neutral or slightly negative connotation.

I agree with Mulya, largely anyway.

Basically a strong personality is someone who has a distinctive personality and who is secure in that.

What your friend is describing is a dominant personality and a forceful one at that. You definition would be closer to what I have in mind.

I don’t know if I am or have a strong personality. It is hard to say about oneself.
