Are you the same person you were?

Time changes everything , even the way we interact with the world around us . Personality is not set in stone by age 30, but continues to change throughout one's lifetime.

Five major personality traits --

conscientiousness
agreeableness
neuroticism
openness
extraversion

continue to evolve as people age. A survey was done where they've noted that gender is relevant in how personality changes over time. Women became less neurotic, yet always remained more neurotic than men. At the same time, women remained more extraverted and outgoing than men throughout life. Therefore people are always changing. That is, we may not be the same person we were 5 years ago.

So are you the same person you were few years ago? What changed?

Every so often I look back and think of how much I've changed..year by year I grow, and I surprise myself in my growth.

I've changed greatly, I'm no longer a work-a-holic working 70+ hours a week and ignoring the more important things in life

I know Ive changed. Some for the good and some maybe not. I used to be bad about saying what I think too much, then I learned self edit. Now I am back too it but with a little more sensitivity. LOL

I know I have changed also I think divorce changes you and makes you realize what you really want out of life.

I'd be suprised if anyone said they hadn't changed. I know that I have changed 100% in five years. I'm more true to myself and to those around me. I appreciate my family and friends and.. well, I've just plain grown up a lot. I've defently learned to enjoy life as it comes and stop looking for the next best thing.

Absolutely! The older I get the more I appreciate the little things in life. Something as simple as a sunrise or something as huge as my grandchildren giving me hugs. I don't have to go anywhere to be happy. I can do that at home. I am not the "party girl" I use to be but I still know how to have a good time. I love my parents more...I miss my father since he's passed...yes, I have changed but I am still the same me.

As I have grown older I have become what my father was. Smarter, more contemplative and able to enjoy the simple things in life.

Changed? Oh, yeah.

In the 50's I was a little kid who wanted to be blind in one eye so I could wear an eye patch and look cool. (Anyone remember the Hathaway shirt man?)

In the 60's I was a rebel just because. I wore a jacket with an American flag on the back (Anyone remember "Easy Rider"?) and participated in a few demonstrations, a few avant-garde theater productions, and a lot of self-important angst.

In the 70's I grew up a little bit. Got married in '76. Started back to school and was surprised how much I enjoyed it.

In the 80's I got my bachelors and masters degrees. Worked in social service type professions. Became a father. Grew up a lot.

In the 90's I raised my son, took care of my sick grandmother, and was filled with surpise at how full my life was becoming. I wrote a full-length play with a friend, saw it produced, and watched the audience enjoy what we had done.

In the 00's, I've started to wonder why I think young and feel old. I'm amazed and gratified by my son's integrity and sense of humor. I am humbled by my wife's constancy and belief in me. I find I want to live to be an old man.

I'm quieter now than I was as a young man. My opinions now remain pretty much my own. I'm content to work in the background and avoid the spotlight. I've not been a success in the world's estimation ... I am not rich, famous, or gloriously good-looking ... but every now and then I'm really happy with where I've been and where I'm going. And, every now and then, that's enough.

What a nice summary of "CHANGE". I loved every word of it! Do you write books? Poetry perhaps? Very well written. Thanks for that.
