Are you the same person you were when you were a young child? That question raises profound philosophic considerations but also has more pragmatic implications: how, if at all, has your personality changed as you have grown up and gotten older? According to new research, your younger personality may have no bearing on, or relationship to, who you are as a senior citizen. Publishing in the journal Psychology and Aging, researchers from the University of Edinburgh examined the personalities of 14 years olds and then re-examined that same group at the age of 77. The results? Personality can shift dramatically as you age and there may be no such thing as a stable personality over time. While there are some caveats to this research, this may be good news for those of us who would like to forget about the people we were during our younger, more awkward years.
