As for motivational theory and stagnation over centuries. I personally don't buy it as a general rule. Yes, I've seen a lot of people stagnate but I've also seen a lot of people change rapidly and drastically. I think the statement should be changed to "some" people is all I'm driving at. Now we can argue that some are destined to change like that due to their, biases, genetics, social influences, etc. But if some are predisposed to change a lot over their lives that shows that stagnation isn't a general rule. Eghgug, this is far too wordy. In short, if motivational theory applies in this way and suggests stagnation as a general rule. Why do some old people change drastically? What's the ratio? How would cultural influences affect this ratio?

I guess it's necessarily a definition of what we mean by stagnation.
