Influences of Personality on Cognition

Influences of Personality on Cognition

(p.309) chapter thirteen Influences of Personality on Cognition
Developmental Influences on Adult Intelligence

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes analyses on the relation between personality and cognition. Included in the analyses are three different subsets from the Seattle Longitudinal Study. Interestingly, it was found that there are modest but significant concurrent relationships between personality trait measures and ability construct that account for up to 20% of shared variance. The personality dimensions that were most substantively related to high performance on cognitive ability factors were high untroubled adequacy, low conservatism, and low group dependency from the thirteen personality factors measure and high scores of Openness on the NEO Personality Inventory. There is moderate stability across time for the personality measures which is fairly comparable with the stability found in much of the personality literature.
