"When we remember our past selves, they seem quite different. We know how much our personalities and tastes have changed over the years."


Interesting stuff. What I find most surprising is that even after reading the article I find it difficult to imagine a future self which differs significantly from who I am now. I think it might be easier for me to imagine a different person entirely, and then think of how I might become that person, and the timeframe involved in those events. Because trying to predict an internal change seems nearly impossible.
