Though Mulla Sadra believes that soul plays all causes he falls short of mentioning the factors influential on the causality of soul. To play a cause, the soul is under the influence of certain factors including temper, character and psychological traits. Temper is something different from soul; psychological traits which consist of knowledge, free will and power are the origins of actions and character is the psychological traits deeply rooted in the soul. Each factor has its own bearing on the causality of soul. This article aims to study how these factors influence the soul and whether or not the soul can influence back these factors if it intends to do so. Such studies can lead to new results in matters like education.
