Status of the Trait Concept in Contemporary Personality Psychology: Are the Old Questions Still the Burning Questions?
Fajkowska M and Kreitler S. J Pers 2018. PMID 29327349
This special issue of Journal of Personality addresses one of the cardinal concerns of personality psychology, namely, the status of traits in contemporary personality science. ...Modern trait approaches confront problems such as constructing an objective personality traits assessment, connecting the descriptive traits with explanatory processes, applying traits for understanding the individual person, clarifying the relation of traits to behavior, and using traits for solving cardinal concerns of personality psychology (e.g., personality organization). ...

Individual differences in personality change across the adult life span.
Schwaba T and Bleidorn W. J Pers 2018. PMID 28509384
OBJECTIVE: A precise and comprehensive description of personality continuity and change across the life span is the bedrock upon which theories of personality development are built. ...CONCLUSIONS: These results inform theories of life span development and provide future directions for research on the causes and conditions of personality change....

Secular rise in economically valuable personality traits.
Jokela M, et al. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2017. PMID 28584092 Free PMC article.
We analyze data from a standardized personality test administered to 79% of Finnish men born between 1962 and 1976 (n = 419,523) and find steady increases in personality traits that predict higher income in later life. ...When anchored to earnings, the change in personality traits amounts to a 12% increase. Both personality and cognitive ability have consistent associations with family background, but the trends are similar across groups defined by parental income, parental education, number of siblings, and rural/urban status. ...

A phenotypic null hypothesis for the genetics of personality.
Turkheimer E, et al. Annu Rev Psychol 2014 - Review. PMID 24050184
We review the genetically informed literature on the genetics of personality. Over the past century, quantitative genetic studies, using identical and fraternal twins, have demonstrated that differences in human personality are substantially heritable. ...We examine whether differences in the heritability of personality are replicable across different traits, samples, and studies; how the heritability of personality relates to its reliability; and how behavior genetics can be employed in studies of validity, and we discuss the stability of personality in genetic and environmental variance. ...

The Relationship Between Personality and Schadenfreude in Hypothetical Versus Live Situations.
Greenier KD. Psychol Rep 2018. PMID 29298628
This study sought to investigate how individual differences are related to schadenfreude (pleasure derived from another's misfortune) by replicating past findings and extending them to additional personality traits. ...For the live event, no personality traits were correlated with schadenfreude, suggesting responses to hypothetical situations may not be representative of real-life schadenfreude events....

The General Factor of Personality and Character: A Reanalysis.
Dunkel CS and van der Linden D. J Genet Psychol 2017. PMID 29072543
In turn the relationship between the general factor of character and the Big Five personality traits were examined. It was found that personality was associated with the general factor of character primarily through the traits of conscientiousness and openness. For several reasons we propose that a more accurate interpretation of the data is that a Big Five personality traits form a general factor of personality, and that the relationship between the general character factor and personality is primarily through the general factor of personality. ...

Subjective age and personality development: a 10-year study.
Stephan Y, et al. J Pers 2015. PMID 24471687
Personality theory and research typically focus on chronological age as a key indicator of personality development. This study examines whether the subjective experience of age is an alternative marker of the biomedical and psychosocial factors that contribute to individual differences in personality development. The present study uses data from the Midlife in the United States longitudinal survey (N = 3,617) to examine how subjective age is associated with stability and change in personality and the dynamic associations between subjective age and personality traits over a 10-year period. ...

A robust data-driven approach identifies four personality types across four large data sets.
Gerlach M, et al. Nat Hum Behav 2018. PMID 31406291
Understanding human personality has been a focus for philosophers and scientists for millennia(1). It is now widely accepted that there are about five major personality domains that describe the personality profile of an individual(2,3). In contrast to personality traits, the existence of personality types remains extremely controversial(4). Despite the various purported personality types described in the literature, small sample sizes and the lack of reproducibility across data sets and methods have led to inconclusive results about personality types(5,6). ...

Genetic and environmental continuity in personality development: a meta-analysis.
Briley DA and Tucker-Drob EM. Psychol Bull 2014 - Review. PMID 24956122 Free PMC article.
To what extent does the increasing stability of personality result from the continuity and crystallization of genetically influenced individual differences, and to what extent does the increasing stability of life experiences explain increases in personality trait stability? ...Both the genetic and environmental influences on personality increase in stability with age. The contribution of genetic effects to phenotypic stability is moderate in magnitude and relatively constant with age, in part because of small-to-moderate decreases in the heritability of personality over child development that offset increases in genetic stability. ...
