Koopmans et al. (1995) studied sensation seeking using Dutch twins aged 12–24 and their parents. They used Zuckerman’s Sensation Seeking Scale, which has several non-overlapping subscales. They found that “genes play a major role in the individual differences in sensation seeking” (p. 354), replicating results from Fulker, Eysenck, and Zuckerman. (1980). No shared environmental influences were significant. Eaves et al. (1997) used a 28-item social attitude survey to study conservatism. They found an important age difference, with twins younger than 20 having their conservatism related to shared environmental factors, while those older than 20 had conservatism variance that was primarily related to genetic influence.

They found different models for males and females. Genetic influences were stronger for females than for males for both depression indicators, and also for the covariation between social connectedness and depression. Other (overlapping) literature has investigated antisocial behavior in adolescents.
