In today's organizations people from diverse cultures and sub-cultures come to work. If some one comes from a rural or urban back ground they will have different ways of looking at different entities which makes it harder to deal with them. It is difficult to get work done by these people because they will not work if they are dealt with in same monotonous manner. How singular people observe unlike things because of their cultural back ground. In an organization, when individuals are asked to perform a task every one may not be willing to do it depending on how they perceive their orders. Human relations becomes important in such situations if the supervisor can access the situation, mood, and personality of the employees and then give orders and get he work done.

The term personality refers basically to the type of person an individual is. The word comes from the Middle English word "personalite", taken from the Old French, and derived from the Latin word "persona" meaning person. The term refers to the description of the behavioural, mental and emotional traits of a human being. It is a term studied and referred to, to quiet an extent in personality psychology; which deals with such things as personality types, personality disorders etc. For a lay man the personality of a person can be defined as pleasing, short tempered, arrogant etc based on their obvious demeanour.

Personality can also be used in an abstract sense to refer to the characteristics or feel of a room, a car etc.
