How to Describe Someone’s Character and Personality in English

Adjectives are used to describe someone’s character and personality.

Most people would consider the character traits described by the personality adjectives below to be “good” or positive. This is generally true, but remember that words are often used subjectively. For example, “determined” is shown here as a positive personality adjective, while “stubborn” is listed on the negative personality adjectives page, yet the meaning of both can be very similar. The choice of word sometimes says as much about the author as about the person being described.
