The Filipino Personality

Virgilio Enriquez, a famous Filipino psychologist, says that the question “Who is the Filipino?” cannot be adequately answered. A definition of the Filipino on the basis of birth, geographic origin or blood is inadequate from the psychological point of view. Suggest that in answering this question, attention should be focused on the Filipino Identity, image and consciousness. The Filipino’s identity is not static, it is as dynamic as his background. A Filipino may be described as anyone who feels and thinks Filipino and may be anyone who says he is a Filipino. This statement confounds the issues especially when we wish to describe the behavior of the Filipino. At most, what we can do now is to present some Filipino traits and characteristics with the aim in view of understanding how the Filipino solves his problems of adjusting to his social and natural environment.
