Personality genetics

Personality genetics is a scientific field that examines the relation between personalitys and genetics.Studies investigate the link by genetic association studies where subjects are genotyped and their personality is quantified with a personality test.Among the possible links found is, e.g., one between a polymorphism called 5-HTTLPR in the serotonin transporter gene and the personality trait neuroticism.
