Description: 
In the eighth report, Professor Richie Poulton, who was appointed as the 12th CJ Koh Professor from 5 to 12 October 2017, presented his findings that self-control was a prominent factor contributing to a person’s success in life. As Director of the Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Research Unit, University of Otago, Prof Poulton extracted his findings from the data of his Unit’s longitudinal research of 1,037 babies who were born in Dunedin from 1972 to 1973. The project continues to study with most of these participants till today. Important observations were that the higher the self-control, the greater chance of success in life one has, and also that self-control may be cultivated at any stage in life.
