Top 10 Replicated Findings From Behavioral Genetics

Can’t we do something to squelch this type of research? It’s harmful! We need Safe Spaces!

From Perspectives on Psychological Science:

ABSTRACT: In the context of current concerns about replication in psychological science, we describe 10 findings from behavioral genetic research that have replicated robustly. These are “big” findings, both in terms of effect size and potential impact on psychological science, such as linearly increasing heritability of intelligence from infancy (20%) through adulthood (60%). Four of our top 10 findings involve the environment, discoveries that could have been found only with genetically sensitive research designs. We also consider reasons specific to behavioral genetics that might explain why these findings replicate.
