The easiest way to describe and recognize a person is through his physical attributes.

We would notice people through their characteristics. In other words, a person could better recognize or remember through his personality.

Personality refers to more than the physical attributes of person. It leads us to an understanding of who we are and how we similar or different from other individuals.
