Researchers have identified personality traits in 10-year-olds that can determine how successful they are likely to be as adults. While the team from London University found that badly behaved children are more likely to turn into dysfunctional adults, they also uncovered unexpected attributes that help predict success. 6.1. _____ This ‚internalising behaviour’ as a child meant that, as an adult, a person was less likely to smoke, turn to crime as a man or become a teenage mother as a woman. The researchers said this could be because solitary children tend to make up their own minds rather than submit to peer pressure. 6.2. _____ Although there have been similar studies before, none has looked so closely at the social factors in youth that can predict success in later life. The research found that children who fidgeted, destroyed their belongings, were disobedient and bullied others – ‚externalising behaviour’ – were more likely than others to be dissatisfied with their adult lives. Children who stole, got into fights and told lies were also more likely than their less troublesome peers to be unhappy in later life. They had a greater chance of being out of work, smoking and not voting in elections. 6.3. ______ In both sexes good relations with peers meant less chance of depression and low income later in life. Good maths skills in girls and good reading skills in boys were linked to greater happiness as grown-ups. Researchers found that the links between childhood difficulties and adult behaviour held firm even when the social background of the children was taken into account. 6.4. _____ Getting involved in art and music, and reading and writing for pleasure, were all linked to raised earnings, an increased likelihood of going to university and a greater propensity to take part in voluntary work. Going to the theatre regularly was also linked to increased earning potential. According to one theory, taking part in high-culture activities makes it easier for teenagers to make friendships with powerful older people, which thus increases the chances of their lives turning out well.
Abridged form: The Sunday Times, June 29, 2003

A. Other research from the same database, called the 1970 British Cohort Study, showed that the way teenagers spend their time can also affect their later lives, no matter what the social class of their parents.
B. On the other hand, children who had plenty of self-esteem and had good friendships with other children enjoyed better chances of success as adults.
C. While ‚bad’ traits in a child increase the likelihood of adult problems by only a few percent, researchers said the effects of the link across a population would be pronounced.
D. Contrary to the expectations of researchers, children who were often worried, frequently played on their own, cried a lot and were fussy and fearful had a tendency to develop into successful adults.
E. The findings are part of a research project tracking the lives over 30 years of 12,000 people born in 1970.

Promptly at the beginning of twilight, came again to that quiet corner of that quiet, small park the girl in grey. She sat upon a bench and read a book. She had come there at the same hour on the previous day, and on the day before that, and there was one who knew it. The young man who knew it hovered near. He was rewarded, for, in turning a page, her book slipped from her fingers and bounded from the bench a full yard away. The young man pounced upon it with instant avidity, returning it to its owner. The girl looked at his ordinary, neat dress and his ordinary features.
‚You may sit down, if you like,’ she said. ‚The light is too bad for reading.’
‚Do you know,’ he said, ‚that you are quite the stunningest girl I have seen in a long time?
I had my eye on you yesterday.’
‚Whoever you are,’ said the girl, in icy tones, ‚you must remember that I am a lady.’
‚I earnestly beg your pardon,’ pleaded the young man. ‚It was my fault -‚
‚Can you surmise why I spoke to you, Mr. – ?’
‚Parkenstacker,’ supplied the young man. Then he looked eager and hopeful.
‚ – Mr. Parkenstacker, because I wanted to talk, for once, with a natural man – one unspoiled
by wealth and supposed social superiority. Oh! You do not know how weary I am of it – money, money, money! And of the men who surround me. I am sick of pleasure, of jewels, of travel, of society, of luxuries of all kinds.’
‚I always had an idea,’ said the young man, ‚that money must be a pretty good thing.’
‚It is the monotony of it,’ she continued, ‚that palls. Dinners, theatres, balls. Sometimes I have thought that if I ever should love a man it would be one of lowly station. One who is a worker and not a drone. What is your line of business, Mr. Parkenstacker?’
‚A very humble one. But I hope to rise in the world. I work in a restaurant.’ – on the street
they faced that bounded the opposite side of the park was the brilliant electric sign ‚RESTAURANT’ – ‚I am a cashier in that restaurant you see there.’
The girl consulted a tiny watch set in a bracelet upon her left wrist, and rose, hurriedly.
‚Why are you not at work?’ she asked.
‚I am on the night turn,’ said the young man. ‚May I not hope to see you again?’
‚I do not know. Perhaps. I must go quickly now. Perhaps you noticed an automobile at the
upper corner of the park as you came. One with a white body. I always come in that. Pierre waits
for me there. Good night.’
‚But it is dark now,’ said Mr. Parkenstacker, ‚and the park is full of rude men.’
‚If you have the slightest regard for my wishes,’ said the girl, firmly, ‚you will remain at this
bench for ten minutes after I have left. Again, good night.’
Swift and stately she moved away through the dusk. The young man watched her graceful form as she reached the pavement at the park’s edge. Then he treacherously and unhesitatingly began to dodge and skim among the park trees and shrubbery in a course parallel to her route, keeping her well in sight. When she reached the corner she turned her head to glance at the motor car, and then passed
it, continuing on across the street. The young man followed her movements closely with his eyes. Passing down the sidewalk of the street opposite the park, she entered the restaurant with the blazing sign. The cashier’s desk was well to the front. A red-haired girl on the stool climbed down. The girl in grey mounted in her place. The young man walked slowly back along the sidewalk. Then he stepped into the automobile and said two words to the chauffeur: ‚Club, Henri.’
Adapted and abridged from: O’Henry, While the Auto Waits
