Dr. Deniz Ones

Based on a study of over 1,300 studies involving millions of people across the globe as well as decades, Kevin Stanek and Deniz Ones are quoted by Big Think in the article “An enormous study links intelligence and personality in surprising ways.” Stanek and Ones found that there are considerable, previously undocumented relations between personality attributes and cognitive abilities.  Ones and Stanek plan to use this newfound discovery to further understand why certain personality traits and cognitive abilities go together and how they can help one to succeed.
