We are who we are....who are you?

This interesting (if some what short article) was found in The New Scientist written in 2003. I had no idea that the biologically accepted age limit for personality change was 30 years. Further studies have suggested that this is no longer the case. We are talking about a socially adept person whose personality changes to complement the surrounding environment. Maybe 'changes' is a harsh word - how about, 'is sympathetic to the surrounding environment'? The article presensents to us that we infact are in control of the way we choose to grow, and how our Big 5 (http://wallaby.wmin.ac.uk/cgi-bin/buchant/wwwffi/wwwffi1a.pl) is affected by our age.

I like the thought that we are all still able to adapt and redefine ourselves on a continous basis...
