As far as NPA link with this question, every generation in the west may be showing the increase in A- trait. The immigration of demonstrative people into the USA 125 years ago increased the A trait, and since the original population had a high A- trait frequency but a lower A trait frequency, the generations began to show more NA-and NPA- as well as NA= and NPA= types, thus much less bravery and boldness as evidenced by the greatest generation.
