Thetechniques which can be used in the analysis of human behavior by'the methods of. biometricaI genetics are described and compared with those of the Multiple Abstract" Variance Analysis (MAVA), and other approaches. These techniques are applied to a number of p~rsonality and cognitive measures using published data• .Underlying assumptions of the analyses used are discussed, and tests of significance for departure from them are demonstrated. Although data were often inadequate, the techniques… CONTINUE READING
