Self-Improvement And Self-Discovery Work Together

We live between rigidity and malleability. It means that both self-discovery and self-improvement matter.

  • Self-discovery matters because the goals you set, and the life philosophy you hold, needs to be informed by the parts of yourself that tend to be fixed.
  • Self-improvement is important because we are able to modify many of our traits. Self-improvement also leads to self-discovery. The more you experiment and strive, the more you learn about yourself.

While genetic research stands out in favour of rigidity, there is contrary evidence.

How much we can change ourselves can be explored by looking at the extremes.

Studies involving identical and fraternal twins (even reared apart) showed that most parts of our nature are partly heritable. Intelligence may be as high as 80% heritable, but 50% is the standard number of many of the domains, including personality.
