Role of Personality on Excercise

August 31st, 2007 by Paul Johnson

According to researchers at the University of Florida, your personality plays a big role in excercise. They found that certain personalities were more likely to stick to a excercise program. The type of excercises they chose also correlated with personality.

We as bodybuilders, often try to push a active lifestyle on others, but this study shows some people naturally don’t have the will. This is NOT an excuse, but it means don’t be surprised if some have a very hard time sticking to long term excercise goals. Another interesting thing to note, is that the results weren’t based on weight or body image, but on personality.
