Hi there,
I wondered for a while if there were any differences between 性格 and 人格. I know these two terms mean "the personality" of someone, but I saw somewhere that 性格 meant more the "temperament, character of someone". Can anyone help me?
Thanks for your replies

    Hi,
    As you pointed out, 人格 and 性格 is a similar meaning word.
    人格 is a ethical or moral part of individuals.
    性格 is a preference of emotion or intention of each individual.
    We use ’人格教育’ but not ’性格教育’
