Facts found in the studies
Facts found in the studies

Facts found in the studies1
Facts found in the studies

  • traits such as aggression, achievement, orderliness and social closeness were fostered in the home environment

  • striking similarities were mannerisms (such as wearing rubber bands on the wrists, or reading magazines backwards), personal choices (such as choice of names for pets or children, or choice of clothing styles), and expressive social behavior (shyness or social ease, laughter, facial expressions and posture). These are exactly the sorts of things many of us refer to as personality, so these findings can be interpreted as strong support for genetic influences on personality.
