Congratulations on submitting! The worst bit should now be over, with very high probability.
Great newsletter, subscribed. Kudos!
Thank you for this! This was just lovely to read over my morning coffee.
I think a lot about how personality interacts with intellectual development. Betting there's potential to improve academic outcomes there. Can treating childhood anxiety increase intelligence? If you do more to inspire imagination in lower openness students, can that boost their cognitive devel?
It's common to tailor students' educational experiences based on cognitive tests, but to my knowledge no one tailors their educational experiences based on personality traits that might influence cognitive development.
