The new app we’re referring to is “Personality Coach”, also goes by the name PEACH. It was developed by scientists from various institutions: the universities of Zurich, St. Gallen, Brandeis, Illinois, and ETH Zurich.

The scientists first studied human personality and how quickly it can be modified under certain stimuli. They found that human personality can be changed in three months. And these changes are long-term.

“The fact that personality traits can change over longer time periods and that changes in personality traits may bring about positive outcomes leads to the important follow-up question of whether and how people can intentionally and permanently modify or change their personality traits over relatively short time periods”, declares Dr. Mathias Allemand from the University of Zurich, one of the study’s authors.
