A genome-wide association study of Cloninger's temperament scales: implications for the evolutionary genetics of personality reports a personality genetics study on 1,252,387 genetic markers and 5117 individuals with Cloninger's temperament scales.

The study is discuss in in a blog by Jonah Lehrer [1], The Neurocritic [2][3] and Razib Khan [4]
