How Personality And Health Interact Surprises?
I don’t think anyone is surprised that your mind and emotions can effect your body. Just test your blood pressure, get angry and test your blood pressure again. But what went with what?
These tests demonstrated relationships between personality traits and physical results including longevity.
As we discover more evidence of how different forces affect our health, premature or youthful aging; a big takeaway is we can take more control over our health and longevity.
Why not explore what’s possible to maximize health instead of spending our money on – what I consider the stupid strategy – of blowing a fortune each year on insurance to recover our health that we’re gonna lose if we don’t spend time and money maximizing our health?
Remember that if a personality trait has an impact on you physically, take note and then research what nutrients, meditations, energy healing technologies, can counteract the personality… And if you really get desperate, you might even want to develop some healthier personality traits.

How Is Your Personality Linked To Your Health?
Researchers have found new evidence that explains how some aspects of our personality may affect our health and wellbeing, supporting long-observed associations between aspects of human character, physical health and longevity.
A team of health psychologists at The University of Nottingham and the University of California in Los Angeles carried out a study to examine the relationship between certain personality traits and the expression of genes that can affect our health by controlling the activity of our immune systems.
The study did not find any results to support a common theory that tendencies toward negative emotions such as depression or anxiety can lead to poor health (disease-prone personality). What was related to differences in immune cell gene expression were a person’s degree of extraversion and conscientiousness.
