Masking (Personality Theory) - Masking is a process in which an individual changes or "masks" his or her natural personality to conform to social pressures, abuse, and or harassment. Some examples of masking are a single overly dominant temperament, or humor, two incongruent temperaments, or displaying three of the four main temperaments within the same individual. Masking can be strongly influenced by environmental factors such as authoritarian parents, rejection, and emotional, physical, or sexual abuse.
