Wiki Version:
In 2023 we published an article in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reporting the findings of our meta-analyses of personality traits and cognitive abilities ( To more deeply delve into the findings, provide richer interpretations of the results, and discuss their implications we also published a book in the same year ("Of Anchors & Sails: Personality-ability trait constellations" []). Given the length and density of the book, we also received requests for a distilled version, so we created this primer ("Our Constellations") to highlight our core findings and the theory they helped inductively build.
