Study finds no correlation between personality at 14 years old and 77

The longest ever personality study has just compared the personalities of almost 200 people aged 77 and with the personalities of the same people when they were aged 14.

It found that there is no correlation between personalities at the different ages:

“Personality in older age may be quite different from personality in childhood.”

In other words, as well as human beings we are also human becomings. And no matter where you are now you can change and move towards wherever you want to be, even in terms of your personality.

Chapter 5 of Inner Leadership helps you to define an overall big picture of what is most important to you. Chapter 3 helps you identify your current options for moving forward. Chapter 4 helps you choose between them. Chapter 6 helps you turn that choice into an inspiring vision.
