Washington: A new research from psychologists at Rice University has revealed that conscientious people are more likely to have higher grade point averages.They examine previous studies that research the link between the "Big Five" personality traits -agreeableness, conscientiousness, extraversion, neuroticism and openness to experience - and college grade point average.It found that across studies, higher levels of conscientiousness lead to higher college grade point averages. It also showed that five common personality tests are consistent in their evaluation of the "Big Five" personality traits; all five measures found a positive correlation between conscientiousness and grade point average and virtually no correlation between the other four personality traits and grade point average.According to Sam McAbee, a psychology graduate student at Rice and the study`s lead author, the study has important implications for college admission offices and employers, who use personality tests to measure an individual`s capacity for success.
