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.
