Correlations: Show relationship between 2 variables Medical assessment: Psychiatric interview, medical life history, standard blood test, detailed dental and periodontal exams Psychological assessment: academic ability, personality and interests, family and social relationships, mental and physical health, psychological measurement Genetic characteristics: Leadership ability, imagination, vulnerability to stress, alienation, desire to shun risks Environmental characteristics: aggression, achievement, orderliness, social closeness Conclusions concerning the sources of the psychological differences and behavioral variation between twins: 1. Genetic factors exert a prominent and universal influence on behavioral differences. 2. The effect of being reared in the same home is not that important for many psychological traits Problems with Bochard’s study: media coverage to recruit, ethical concerns about way he reunited twins, no adequate control to establish frequency of contact between twins before the study, cannot assume that twins who are raised together experience the same environment.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
