A philosophical assumption when it comes to the human personality is, quoting Dr. C. George Boeree

Uniqueness vs. universality. Is each person unique, or will we eventually discover universal laws which will explain all of human behavior? Again, more moderate positions are available: Perhaps there are broad rules of human nature with room for individual variation within them; Or perhaps our individuality outweighs our commonalities.

quoting wikipedia:

Uniqueness versus Universality

The argument over whether we are all unique individuals (Uniqueness) or if humans are basically similar in their nature (Universality). Gordon AllportAbraham Maslow, and Carl Rogers were all advocates of the uniqueness of individuals. Behaviorists and cognitive theorists, in contrast, emphasized the importance of universal principles such as reinforcement and self-efficacy.

Interestingly I witness universality dominant around me, even from a behavior point of view the deviations are thin or a are they getting thinner?!!!

…might come back to this topic some other time.

    Good day, I was reading another fact about this on another blog. Interesting. Your perspective on it is diametrically contradicted to what I read earlier. I’m still pondering over the opposite points of view, but I’m leaning to a great extent toward yours. And irrespective, that’s what is so good about modern-day democracy and the marketplace of ideas online.
