Extract:

Genes encoding for AP-2beta and the serotonin transporter are associated with the personality character spiritual acceptance reports a personality genetics study on the TFAP2B gene and with personality traits assessed with the Temperament and Character Inventory.

[edit] Results

Standard deviations of personality scores are not given (a pooled very rough estimate of it may however be computed from the Wilcoxon p-value, means and number of subjects).

[edit] Critique

  1. Bias reporting of traits: Only statistics are given for significant traits (Self-transcendence and spiritual acceptance)
  2. Standard deviation of the personality scores is not given (a pooled very rough estimate of it may however be computed from the p-value, means and number of subjects).
  3. There is a relatively low number of subjects in the study.
