Do different languages confer different personalities?

The argument in the article is your native language have a bearing on your personality, it's called the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis. With Chinese, since there no tenses, it changes how you look at the world. A fun Sci Fi Book to read with this concept is The Languages of Pao

I have seen this a bit, where depending on the language a person acts differently. Since language has a huge bearing on culture.

At a pharmacy counter onetime I remember, a female Pharmacist had the nicest sounding Spanish, and when she switched to English, her voice and the way she said things was not as nice. I saw the same thing with a former boss, from Argentina, where when he spoke Spanish to his wife, it was much better sounded than his English.
