Researchers analyzed data from almost 1800 participants who took the same personality test in high school and then 50 years later. Overall, they became more conscientious, more emotionally stable, and more agreeable with maturation. Nevertheless, most subjects maintained their positions on personality traits relative to their peers. To illustrate, those who were more conscientious than their peers at age 18 remained so 50 years later. (In brief. Personality over the life span. Monitor on Psychology, 2018, 49(10), p. 18)
