Further, we have created a 2D map of human psychotypes and identified the regions that are most vulnerable to depression. This map may be used to provide personalized recommendations for maximizing one’s future well…

Psychological aging, depression, and well-being

This work proposes that biomarkers of psychological age, which are just as important as those for biological age, may likewise be used for these purposes, and foresee the development of a broad range of parametric and deep psychological and biopsychological aging clocks, which may have implications for drug development and therapeutic interventions, and thus healthcare and other industries.

Adaptation and the Set-Point Model of Subjective Well-Being
