The major factors of conscientiousness are:

Conscientiousness is the single most important personality determinant of health, longevity, and even lifetime income. The health aspect includes EVERYTHING—happiness and overall physical, mental and spiritual wellness as well as, weight, exercise, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, etc.
The goal of the Chair in Conscientious Psychology is to develop techniques to enhance the development of conscientiousness.
