    In essence, yes. Agreeable people compromise more with others and are much more likely to place others' needs before them or retreat on a particular issue to maintain the peace.

    Key point: less agreeable

    Ie. be firm in your beliefs but not a dick.

    Nothing new to see here

    Agreeing with most people = being wrong most of the time.
