Is behavior the expression of attitude?In our daily life, the word 'attitude' is witnessed as a negative word and it highlights the arrogant nature of a person but actually, attitude is referred to as a feeling or an opinion about something. It need not be negative always. An attitude can either be positive, negative or neutral because it focuses only on a person's way of thinking. Not everyone will be in the same state of mind and will approach a person or any situation with a stable mindset or the same viewpoint. A set of emotions, belief and the perceptions of a person varies depending upon the surroundings and certain events in his/her life. Breaking a person's strong belief in something is tedious and is also not easy to change a person's attitude.
If a person has a strong opinion or feeling on an object or any person, then it is obvious that his/her usage of words, expressions and the behavior will also be somewhat related to their beliefs. On a simple note, we can say that what we think reflects on our behavior. So with this, we can associate a relationship between behavior and attitude. But on the other hand, we can also differentiate attitude from behavior because attitude is merely a person's inner thoughts and feelings gained on experience and observations in life, and behavior is an inborn quality which reflects the reaction of a person for various inputs and it purely relies on a situation.
Does behavior really have a strong association with attitude? Is behavior the expression of attitude? Does attitude influence behavior?
