Did you know that your level of conscientiousness may impact how long you live? Studies at UC-Riverside (Friedman and Kern) found that people who were less conscientious were 50% more likely to die at any given age, on average, than those of the same age who scored highly. Living a scrupulous life appears to prolong one’s life even more than socioeconomic status and intelligence. (Health Psychology, DOI: 10.1037/0278-6133.27.5.505).
