Psychometric and Classification Properties of the Peas in a Pod Questionnaire - Ally R. Avery, Eric Turkheimer, Siny Tsang, Glen E. Duncan
Eric TurkheimerNew paper out in Twin Research Human Genetics. Dated in some sense (it's about dxing zygosity in twins via questionnaire) but I think interesting anyway. "Psychometric and Classification Properties of the Peas in a Pod Questionnaire."
Deciphering the underlying psychology of societal attitudes and prejudices is important in times of political unpredictability. We focus on the foundational construct of preference for (or against) hierarchies between groups, as reflected in the 2...
Eric TurkheimerWell-intentioned but ultimately pointless affirmation of the first law of BG.
Associations between genotype and phenotype derive from four sources: direct genetic effects, indirect genetic effects from relatives, population stratification, and correlations with other variants affecting the phenotype through assortative...
Efforts to link variation in the human genome to phenotypes have progressed at a tremendous pace in recent decades. Most human traits have been shown to be affected by a large number of genetic variants across the genome. To interpret these...
Eric TurkheimerUnsurprisingly, Jonathan's main point is getting lost in the dumpster fire. There is a respectable field of biological ecotypes (sciencedirect.com/topics/biochem…) including some for humans (divers, altitude, diet). By the standards of this field, complex human behavior is a non-starter.
