Increases Extraversion and Conscientiousness are the most common trait change goals, followed by Emotional Stability. Recent research by Hudson and Fraley demonstrates that well-designed psychological interventions can be useful in fostering trait development.
The researchers also found that as people increased in extraversion, conscientiousness, or emotional stability, their change goals concerning those specific traits tended to decrease. An important finding because it lends to even stronger support for the idea that people
are not only actually able to shapetheir personality traits but also achieve goal satisfaction with their behavioural and personality changes.
You can change who you are and how you live, to do so, you must be intentional.
So, who do you want to be?
