Exploring the difference between Digital personality and Personality among GEN Z

In the digital age, GEN Z has grown up surrounded by technology and social media platforms, providing a unique context for personality development and expression. This study explores the difference between GEN Z's digital personality and physical personality traits, and sheds light on the interplay between their online personality and real-life traits.
The study begins with an in-depth examination of the concept of personality, highlighting its complexity and the established psychological frameworks for understanding individual traits and behaviours. Building on this, it examines the emergence of digital personality, which encompasses the traits and behaviours specifically exhibited in the digital world. The study addresses issues of authenticity, self-presentation and the extent to which digital personas match or diverge from a person's core personality traits. Drawing on a variety of studies, surveys and psychological research, it highlights the potential implications and challenges of the co-existence of GenZ digital personas. The study also addresses issues of self-esteem, social comparison, psychological well-being and the impact of online interaction on real-life relationships. Understanding these dynamics can help in developing strategies to effectively navigate the digital landscape while promoting healthy self-expression, self-esteem and meaningful connections for the younger generation.
