Well-organized people may be less likely to develop dementia.

Nearly 900 people over the age of 70 have been evaluated for their conscientiousness, characterized by self-control and good organization.

They were then monitored for eight years.

Those classified most conscientious in the beginning were more than 20% less likely to be diagnosed with dementia during that period, according to the study published in the journal Neuroepidemiology.

One theory is that conscientious people have greater mental reservations – the brain's ability to form new connections.

Researchers at the University of California say that consciousness screening can help identify those at risk of dementia.
