Hi everyone,

Can I say that a farm has a personality of its own or does this only apply to people?

The farms had a simpler style, but a personality of their own, for their particular location and the architectural and decorative forms they display.

Thanks in advance

    Personality is used more of people, but it can be used of a thing (especially a place or location), meaning the distinctive character/atmosphere found there.

    You might say "The computer had a personality of its own."

    Added: used of people and animals(!)
