As all grumpy old bastards will tell ya, once you've lived long enough and worked hard enough, you're allowed to behave however you god damn please.

But in a pretty bizarre study looking at the mental and physical health levels of Italians aged between 90-101 in nine different aread, the University of California San Diego and the University of Rome La Sapienza found that being stubborn could actually play a factor into living longer lives. 

The participants and their younger family members were surveyed on their personalities and lifestyle.
