Your personality may, in part, depend on the shape of your brain

Your personality may, in part, depend on the shape of your brain. An international team of researchers has recently found some interesting connections between the structure of the cortex (the outer layer of the brain) and major personality traits. They discovered that people with a thinner cortex which had a greater area and an increased degree of folding tended to be more open-minded, creative and curious. Those with increased thickness, but reduced area and folding in some parts of the cortex where more prone to neuroticism and mental disorders.
