A more recent study, published only last year, built on this, hoping to begin to understand what kind of person is more likely to obey orders and what kind of person is more likely to rebel against authority figures giving these orders.
The results are described as surprising, except they aren't: it makes perfect sense that a person who relies on external validation (by being friendly, agreeable, etc.) would find it more difficult to defy -- and therefore lose standing before -- a perceived figure of authority.
"The irony is that a personality disposition normally seen as antisocial — disagreeableness — may actually be linked to 'pro-social' behavior,'" noted Psychology Today. "This connection seems to arise from a willingness to sacrifice one’s popularity a bit to act in a moral and just way toward other people, animals or the environment at large. Popularity, in the end, may be more a sign of social graces and perhaps a desire to fit in than any kind of moral superiority."
This might be an opportune time to do a searching and thorough inventory of what qualities you're selecting for in a sexual partner.
