Self-Regulated Personality Development

Short Description: We are interested in identifying why and through which processes personality is changing throughout adulthood by analyzing whether individuals actively change their own personality traits. Specifically, we measure (a) the subjective desirability of personality change, (b) the subjective feasibility of personality change, and (c) actual personality change.

Methodological Details: Three self-report items, e.g., “Everyone is a certain type of person and you cannot do much about changing it.”
