Are smart people grumpier?
Grumpy and brainy may go together in older folks; but young people tend to be more open and friendly if they're bright, researchers report.
But, among younger subjects (19-60), openness and extroversion, or friendliness, were tied to higher intelligence scores.
This was not so for the older group (61-89). Instead, a lack of agreeableness was a predictor for the highest test scores in those over 60.
That is, high scorers tended to be grumpier in the over-60 group.
