The Relationship Between Personality and Intelligence: A Detailed Study

The  the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), a peer reviewed journal of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), quantitatively synthesized 1,325 studies including millions of individuals from more than 50 countries to identify novel, considerable ties between personality traits and cognitive abilities.

🪄Smart summary:
A recent study published in PNAS has found that intelligence is negatively related to uneven temper and anxiety, and is associated with increased interpersonally sensitivity, compassion, and managerial potential. It is also related to both factors alpha and beta, which are stability/socialization and plasticity/knowledge acquisition respectively. The study’s appendix is 440 pages.

PNAS recently published what is hands-down the most detailed study of the relationship between measured personality and intelligence

Let’s go through it

If You haven’t Watched the Wizard of Oz with Pink Floyd…

Nobody knows who was the stoner that stumbled upon this uncanny synchronicity.

Back in 1994, someone watched The Wizard of Oz with the sound turned off, while playing Dark Side of the Moon album by Pink Floyd. The most watched movie and the most listened to record will never be the same after you watch the two of them together.

This New York Times article is by, what at the time was a summer intern at the Journal Gazette, eventually went viral and brought this phenomena to the mainstream.

More Wuhan Evidence

After years of official pronouncements to the contrary, strong new evidence has emerged suggesting the virus known as SARS-CoV-2 escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).

Now, answers increasingly look within reach. Sources within the US government say that three of the earliest people to become infected with SARS-CoV-2 were Ben Hu, Yu Ping, and Yan Zhu. All were members of the Wuhan lab suspected to have leaked the pandemic virus.

As such, not only do we know there were WIV scientists who had developed COVID-19-like illnesses in November 2019, but also that they were working with the closest relatives of SARS-CoV-2, and inserting gain-of-function features unique to it.When a source was asked how certain they were that these were the identities of the three WIV scientists who developed symptoms consistent with COVID-19 in the fall of 2019, we were told, “100%”

The Times of London reported that State Department investigators “found evidence that researchers working on these experiments were taken to hospital with Covid-like symptoms in November 2019.” As previously reported in Vanity Fair, some of the information State Department investigators found in 2021 was “sitting in the U.S. intelligence community’s own files, unanalyzed.”

Stunning UFO crash retrieval allegations deemed ‘credible,’ ‘urgent’


According to explosive reporting, the powerful internal investigative body that oversees the nation’s intelligence agencies found a whistleblower’s claims of an illegal government UFO crash retrieval and exploitation effort to be “credible and urgent.” To eliminate potential ambiguity regarding such an extraordinary development, a knowledgeable source confirmed to me that the intelligence community inspector general found “allegations that there is a [UFO crash retrieval] program [to be] urgent and credible.”

Beyond this stunning revelation, the whistleblower — a former high-level intelligence official — is represented by a lawyer who served previously as the intelligence community’s first inspector general, a Senate-confirmed position. The managing partner of the law firm representing the whistleblower reportedly co-signed the complaint submitted to the current Intelligence Community inspector general. As noted in a legal analysis, no lawyer, let alone two high-caliber attorneys, would sign such an extraordinary document without “very credible source material.”

What Happened To Us?

It didn’t used to be this way

As a result we spend an inordinate amount of money on Health Care.

Yet our life expectancy is going down.

Even though we are smoking less.

But we picked up worse vices along the way.

I think a more sedentary life is one factor, but diet is my main culprit.

And we “Consume Vast Quantities”

Along with cheap processed carbohydrates, I mostly blame Sugar.

Do you agree?
