The speculation that misery is connected to identity can be followed to relic, when Hippocrates, and afterward Galen, contended that specific “humors” were dependable for particular identity sorts and shapes of psychopathology. In this article, we examine the major conceptual models that have been proposed to clarify the affiliation between identity and misery, comment on a few critical methodological issues, and specifically survey the experimental writing. Due to space confinements, we constrain our survey to nonbipolar shapes of discouragement.(1) If we can learn more about how a person's personality connects with depression, it could help us figure out why they get depressed and why they might have other health problems at the same time. It could also help us figure out who might be more likely to get depressed and how we can help them. This information would be important for doctors trying to treat people with depression. We talk about seven ideas that try to explain how personality and depression are related, and we look at important things to consider like how studies are done, the different types of mood disorders, and how personality is measured.
