I promised someone I would find some twin studies. Unfortunately I don't have much time to read them thoroughly since I had to schedule a test I now have to study for. But here's some reputable articles for gits and shiggles:

"Genetic and environmental structures of personality: A cluster-analysis approach." Authors:Loehlin, John C.Source:Personality & Individual Differences; Oct2011, Vol. 51 Issue 5, p662-666, 5p.

G., Department of Criminal Justice, Indiana University, IN, US, McCrory, Eamon J. P., Research Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology, University College London, London, England

In another thread, someone recommended Steven Jay Gould's Mismeasure of Man. Lots of interesting stuff there on some famous studies verified (?) with twin data.

Steven Jay Gould's Mismeasure of Man.

He wouldn't be the first man to "mismeasure" himself... Smile
