What is distinction between Double Capacity and Double Personality?


Law recognizes many different capacities in which a man may act. A man may have power to act in an official or representative capacity or he may act in his private capacity or on his own account.

The fact to be noticed is that if a man has two or more capacities it does not give him the power to enter into a legal transaction with himself. Double capacity differs from double personality. Law does not recognize double personality of the individual. For e.g. At common law, a man could not sue himself or contract with himself or convey property to himself even if he was acting on each side in a different capacity.
