The study and research has been published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. The study was completely focused on conscientiousness, neuroticism, and extraversion which are said to be the personality traits. They reflect the enduring patterns of behaving and thinking which may have an impact the healthy and unhealthy behaviours. People with high conscientiousness are said to be more responsible and organized along with hard working nature.

The extroverts get energy from others around and they direct the energies towards other people. They are talkative, enthusiastic and assertive.

The individuals with low neuroticism and higher in extroversion are likely to recover from normal cognitive function.
