THE RIGHT TO PERSONAL IDENTITY
Identity can be described as consciousness and assumption of ways of being, thinking and acting that give meaning and meaning to the life of a person.
Each person is a complete being in itself but in intimate relationship with others. Being a person demands the presence and relationship with others. The ways to structure these forms of relationship are always modulated by the culture of each society, but in any way we can ignore or exclude the feeling of personal identity since it is an essential attribute in the life of any individual.
Many anthropologists claim that we act as multiple agents, which we represent many papers. And in this case they have been based on understanding individual identity as the combination of each of the various social identities that simultaneously or alternative can assume a person.
Social identity refers to a feeling of similarity with others;Personal identity refers to a feeling of difference in relation to those same others.

We can change the shape of our mold but never get rid of it, stop being what we are to become by magic the person we imagine that we can become.
It is a property of intrinsic morphology of the human system that bases a consistent and robust conception of personal identity. The structure can vary from organism to organism, but the organization is essentially the same and constitutes the mechanism that guarantees the identity of the system seen as a whole. The organization is the invariant of the dynamics of biological systems, the unit relationship complex that constitutes the identity of any living being.
It is true that we are all born with a given identity, although very precarious because we need the maternal and family link to survive and develop as people.
Indeed, it is each person who by his own initiative and following his own dynamic that takes off from this cozy soil.
