Existentialism can be defined as the philosophy concerning itself with finding self and the said meaning of life through free will, personal responsibility and choice. This belief is that people are out there in the world searching to find out what they are and who they are throughout life and how these people will make choices in life because of their outlook, beliefs, and experiences. These personal choices become unique to the person without the necessity of an objective form of truth. Overall an existentialist believes that a person should be forced to be responsible and choose without the assistance of laws, ethnic rules or traditions.
Existentialism is a perspective on life where the existence of individuals is meaningless, and it is the individual’s responsibility to imbed purpose and meaning into his or her own life. Authenticity is one of the important characteristics associated with existentialism because of the battle between inauthentic life and authentic life where an individual believes he or she is implementing significance to his or her own life, but is instead blurred from the true meaning of their own existence. Furthermore, authenticity corresponds with boundary situations, which are unavoidable and make an individual muse about life and often pushes the individual to realize that they are living an inauthentic life that is blinded by illusions. Correspondingly, the idea of authenticity is demonstrated through the three distinct characters in the short story “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place”. In Ernest Hemingway’s “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place”, the author suggests that as age progresses and one gets older, it becomes apparent that one’s existence is meaningless because of the individual’s transition from an inauthentic life, to an authentic life.

The concept of personality has fascinated psychologists for years. Allport proposed the hierarchy of traits – cardinal, central, and secondary traits (Allport, 1945). Cattell also proposed his theory, the sixteen dimensions of human personality (Cattell, 1944). Jung developed a type-based theory of personality, with different dichotomous personality categories, which was further developed by Myers and Briggs in 1962 to produce the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (Ford, 2013). Some psychologists have even argued that personality does not exist; that people change behaviour over time and across various situations.
It emphasized on the unconscious mind and on childhood experiences on personality. He believed that there are several different components of personality and they are the ego, the id, and the superego. The ego moderates between the demands of the id. The superego relies on your ideals and morals. The id is reflected on the all of your needs and urges. Another theorist Erickson thought that personality developed through a lot of different stages and that specific problem came up at each level.
Personality is characterized as far as the ways how individuals think, feel, and carry on (behave).

Introduction Existentialists forcefully believe that one defines their own meaning in life, and that by lack of there being an upper power one must espouse their own existence in order to contradict this essence of ‘nothing-ness’. Absurdist fiction is a genre of literature which concerns characters performing seemingly meaningless actions and experiences due to no found meaning or purpose in their lives, and this prospect of uncertainty is key in both plays Waiting for Godot as well as Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Writers Samuel Beckett and Edward Albee use different perspectives on truth and illusion in order to communicate a message to their audience and to make them question the society in which they live in.
