Okay, fair enough. I misread then.Dude I'm asking if in this study they accounted for an important factor to determine it's accuracy, and giving an example of one where they didn't to give the question merit.
I'm not arguing against the big five. I know about it, I'm also well versed in statistics and p values, statistical significance, bayes theorem end all. My point is not to argue against academically accepted concepts based on one flawed study.
I was trying to determine if this study deserves any attention, because you used a click baity title. Calm down, I'm not your enemy..
Re, clickbait: I just copy and pasted the title from MSN's website. I usually just post these when they come out to remind people how important controlling impulses, like this one:
NOTABLE! - What's the difference between Slackers and Go Getters? The answer may have to do w/ brain chemistry.
I mean re: the newest large scale marshmallow study.. I mean I'd literally have to read through the entire thing to see what they did. The devil is in the details, and i honestly don't have the time. We know all of those things tend to cluster together... ie childhood poverty, impulsivity, low conscientiousness.. and we don't exactly know why. Certain genes seem to influence it, but that doesn't seem like the full answer. Another answer may be that impulsivity is an adaptive trait to cause put to 'get while the gettin is good.' The other answer is that impulsivity is simply the cause of most people's woes. I tend to think it's a combination of all of the above, but the main message here is that if you work on impulsivity and self-control, it acts as an upward spiral.
