A Child of Our Time is a 20-year project which follows 25 children from across the UK who were born in 2000. In this two part special the children and their families explore their personalities.
From the preview of the programmes in the Radio Times :The Big Personality Test measures the following personality traits: Openness, Conscientiousness, Extroversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism. More here:The idea is to bring to life the results of an online survey involving hundreds of thousands of participants and see what conclusions it offers on the ways that innate character traits (such as extroversion or conscientiousness) shape our destiny - as opposed to factors like education or where we live.
Among the psychological surprises is the trick that uses a drop of lemon juice to reveal whether you're an extrovert or an introvert.
