Abstract The primary aim of this study was to conduct a bivariate genetic analysis investigating the extent to which genetic and environmental factors contribute to stability and change in personality factors in the period from adolescence to young adulthood on a sample of Croatian twins. The sample used in this research was formed in 1992 based on a register of citizens of Zagreb and data was collected for 160 twin pairs (75 monozygotic and 85 dizygotic twin pairs). Twins were tested twice, 4… Expand
Genetic and Environmental Contributions to Personality Trait Stability and Change Across Adolescence: Results From a Japanese Twin Sample
TLDR
Two-year stability in adolescent personality was influenced mainly by genetic factors, and there were both genetic and environmental innovations in mid-adolescence. Expand
Personality in childhood – A longitudinal behavior genetic approach
Abstract Although well studied in adulthood, the genetic and environmental influences on personality in middle childhood has not yet been fully explored. Particularly little is known about theExpand
Genetic and environmental continuity in personality development: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
This work aggregated effect sizes from 24 longitudinal behavioral genetic studies containing information on a total of 21,057 sibling pairs from 6 types that varied in terms of genetic relatedness and ranged in age from infancy to old age. Expand
Sources of cumulative continuity in personality: a longitudinal multiple-rater twin study.
TLDR
A complex interplay between genetic and environmental factors resulting in the typical patterns of continuity in personality across young and middle adulthood is suggested. Expand
Genetic and Environmental Continuity in Personality Development
The longitudinal stability of personality is low in childhood but increases substantially into adulthood. Theoretical explanations for this trend differ in the emphasis placed on intrinsic maturationExpand
The Behavioural Genetics of Personality Development in Adulthood—Classic, Contemporary, and Future Trends
Behavioural genetic research has led to important advances in the field of personality psychology. When carried out on longitudinal data, behavioural genetic studies also offer promising ways toExpand
Unravelling the Interplay between Genetic and Environmental Contributions in the Unfolding of Personality Differences from Early Adolescence to Young Adulthood
In two studies, we examined the genetic and environmental sources of the unfolding of personality trait differences from childhood to emerging adulthood. Using self–reports from over 3000Expand
Nine-Year Stability of Type D Personality: Contributions of Genes and Environment
TLDR
Assessment of longitudinal changes in genetic and environmental influences on Type D personality and its subcomponents negative affectivity and social inhibition over a 9-year period found type D personality is stable across an 18-month period and is influenced by genetic factors. Expand
How genetic and environmental variance in personality traits shift across the life span: Evidence from a cross-national twin study.
TLDR
The amount of genetic variance in Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Openness followed a reversed U-shaped pattern across age, showed a declining trend for Honesty-Humility and Conscientiousness, and was stable for Emotionality. Expand

Abstract The relative stability and magnitude of genetic and environmental effects underlying major dimensions of adolescent personality across time were investigated. The Junior Eysenck PersonalityExpand
Genetic simplex modeling of Eysenck's dimensions of personality in a sample of young Australian twins.
TLDR
Results from simplex model fitting suggest that large proportions of the additive genetic variance observed at ages 14 and 16 years could be explained by genetic effects present at the age of 12 years. Expand

Shared genes, shared experiences, and similarity of personality: data from 14,288 adult Finnish co-twins.
TLDR
These findings establish genetic variance in major dimensions of adult personality but assign a significant role to common experience as well, challenging the widespread assumption that shared experiences have a negligible impact on sibling similarity in adult personality. Expand
Genetic influences on personality from infancy to adulthood.
TLDR
An overview of the literature documents the demonstration of genetic bases for stability of certain personality dimensions, evidence suggesting that the most influential environmental sources of variation are those not jointly experienced by family members, and continuing controversy regarding the convergence of genetic results for different assessment strategies and different developmental periods.
