I don't have anything

witty to say about this, but it does have a certain deadpan charm (and the whole article about personality in animals is interesting):

Barely any research has been carried out on the evolution of human personality, but what little there is suggests that it may have some parallels with what's happened in birds.
In a survey of 545 people, Dr. Daniel Nettle of the University of Newcastle in England found that the more extroverted people were, the more sex partners they tended to have had. That might give them an evolutionary edge, but Dr. Nettle found that they were also more likely to wind up in a hospital.
