Psychologists have identified six basic dimensions of personality. The most recently discovered is the H factor, representing Honesty and Humility. The authors recount how they found this factor, how it influences various aspects of our lives, and why it matters for individuals and for society.

Originally from Seoul, South Korea, he received his Ph.D. from the University of Western Ontario and was formerly a lecturer at the University of Western Australia. He is the author of many scientific articles in personality and industrial/organizational psychology.
