I'm really interested in the results as I completely agree about correlation of RE and personality type. Small sample size but people who I know who have retired early are generally more independent, individualistic, reflective, and don't see the value of work in the scheme of life's bigger issues. People I know who could financially RE but choose not to tend to be more extraverted (need attention and people), structured, control oriented, perhaps a little more materialistic (need to keep earning $ for additional toys) and like to pay attention to details.
