« The Skeptical Optimist on foreigners holding our debt | Main | Economics chutzpah award »

Causality is, shall we say, somewhat in doubt, but I'd like the conclusion of the discussed study to be true: " . . . upon reaching 60, disagreeable people maintain a higher level of intelligence than more easy-going seniors."

Three cheers for being crankier as you get older.

But the easy-going, cheerful ones live longer!

If I were cranky, I might argue that only one cheer for crankiness is warranted.


So what does it mean when you were fussy and cranky your whole life and you get mellow with age?


Hmmm. My wife would then argue that, given my crankiness level, I should be smarter than hell. (I'm not quite 60, yet, though, so maybe I'll mellow -- and get dumber.)
