If you're about to start college, don't worry over being a loner or not making any friends in your university. Or if you've roamed the college halls for a while now, you might have notice that you and your course mates not only just talk the same language, but also understand each other better. A study suggests that there's a reason why college students easily get along with students from their own course, and psychologist Dr. Anna Vedel has those answers! Of the 13,300 students she tested, she found that students of the same course share some personality traits. She broke them into five personality traits, with each classifying the majority of students per course.

  1. Neuroticism

This personality trait suggests that you are often moody, irritable, and emotional. If your course falls into this category, don't worry because there's something good in store for you in the next traits.
