Based on longitudinal analyses of thousands of children from across the United States, this research demonstrates that three personality types best describe personality. These types are labelled the resilient, the over-controlled, and the under-controlled. Resilient children, capable of controlling their emotions and interacting effectively with others, have the fewest behavioural problems and benefit the most from early intervention programmes and school. Over-controlled children are shy and prone to internalizing disorders. Finally, under-controlled children have difficulty modulating their emotions, are prone to behaviour problems, and fall increasingly behind resilient and over-controlled children in school.
