Willingness trumps knowingness in school success

New studies suggest personality is more important than intelligence when it comes to success in education.

“In practical terms, the amount of effort students are prepared to put in, and where that effort is focused, is at least as important as whether the students are smart," says Griffith University's Dr Arthur Poropat.

“And a student with the most helpful personality will score a full grade higher than an average student in this regard.”
