  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Lesson 315.

  • All right. The title of today's lesson is "Don't Say You Have More Than One

  • Personality. Yeah. In the past, sometimes I've seen some students actually say

  • this and a lot of students of ESL you know, English as a Second Language. If

  • they say they don't realize it. It makes you sound a little crazy. If you say that

  • you have more than one personality because most people have just one

  • personality. So let's look at the note here. If someone has more than one

  • personality, it means that he or she has a serious mental problem. It means that a

  • doctor has diagnosed somebody with multiple personality disorder. Okay. That

  • would mean that that person has two or more distinct identities that could

  • claim to be in the same body. You know, sometimes under stress or you

  • know in certain situations a different personality may come out and we've seen

  • this sometimes in some movies. It's very interesting. Luckily it's very rare, but

  • it does exist. So you don't want to say that. All right. Let's continue here. If a

  • student makes this mistake he should be saying and he has different traits or

  • characteristics or attributes in his personality. That's what he wants to say

  • you know , maybe you have different qualities in your personality. Most of

  • the time when you describe a lot of adjectives about your personality those

  • are the different traits. So but you don't want to see your worth of one

  • personality. So let's look at some examples here. You know, the first one

  • with the X. This would be wrong. You say his personalities are very unique. No. You

  • definitely won't say that because again unless you really truly mean that

  • somebody has multiple personality disorder you should not be saying that.

  • His personality is very unique. Of course you could say that. Or you could say he

  • has some very unique personality traits. That's the way you would say it. Or again

  • you don't want to say it about yourself too, Again you might be insulting yourself.

  • Maybe you know a westerner of course would catch this one right away anyway. I

  • hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye
