One of the most obvious and varied characteristics of mysticism, mystical works and lyric prosaic works is changing personality. Changing personality development is also an important issue in mysticism and lyric prosaic works so that it approaches personality evolution through an intricate process. In mystical works and lyric prosaic works, more specifically in Shams Tabriz’s discourse, the evolution of personality is revealed in various forms. The mystical changing personality in Shams Tabrizi’s discourse, like the hero of the epic genre has a variety of tools at his disposal however, simultaneously, he is distinguished from an epic hero. In Shams Tabrizi’s discourse, changing personality through a mystical journey complements his personality traits. He has to begin this journey to reach the evolution or get to the ultimate goal but in Shams Tabrizi’s discourse, starting the journey is contingent to passing other stages. These stages call the changing personality through the inner voice in a way that he lapses into unconsciousness. After passing these stages, the changing personality takes steps in a difficult journey full of barriers; these barriers are varied in the mystical journey of changing personality and are appeared in various forms for the mystical changing personality. Sometimes the changing personality’s steps are barriers for him; this volatile makes personality separate in the changing personality. This study employs descriptive-analytical methods based on structuralism, uses Shams Tabrizi’s discourse, and intends to study the changing personality in the evolutional process and to formulate theories of repeating the changing personality starting point at the end of the journey and moving out the stagnation of the changing personality variable character in the evolutionary development.
