Abstract

Behavioural ecologists have recently begun emphasising behavioural syndromes, an analogue of personality. This new area offers several insights for the evolutionary genetics of human personality. In particular, it suggests that human personality research could benefit from emphasising: the evolution of reaction norms, correlational selection, indirect genetic effects (IGE), G × E correlations, social situation and partner choice and social networks.
