There were over 200 people who were older than 100 took the experiment and the result showed that people who were outgoing lived longer.
The conclusion of the experiment helpes people to cultivate the good character. The one who is sympathetic and more likely to cooperate with others have lived longer. It is easy to understand the reason. He likes to share happiness and sorrow with his friends. When he is in trouble, many friends will come to help him. So he live with less pressure.
