London: Young adults, who are more outgoing or more emotionally stable, are happier in later life than their introverted or less emotionally stable peers, according to a new study. UK researchers examined the effects of neuroticism and extraversion at ages 16 and 26 years on mental wellbeing and life satisfaction at the age of 60 to 64. They found that personality dispositions by the time of early adulthood have an enduring influence on well-being decades later. The study was conducted by Dr Catharine Gale from the Medical Research Council`s Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit, University of Southampton and a team from the University of Edinburgh and University College London. "Few studies have examined the long-term influence of personality traits in youth on happiness and life satisfaction later in life," Gale said.
