Posted on March 16, by Scott Alexander [Epistemic status: Heritable mostly means genes. Shared environmental means anything that two twins have in common — usually parents, siblings, household, and neighborhood. Non-shared environmental is everything else. That summary is wrong.
The underwhelming performance of shared environment in twin studies torpedoed that whole area of study.
But at least these scholars of social behavior could tell themselves it provided a consolation prize. That means things like your friends, your schoolteachers, and even that time you and your twin got sent away to separate camps must be really important.
More than enough there to continue worrying about how society is Ruining The Children, right? Measurement error is neither genetics nor family, so it ends up in the non-shared environmental term. IQ tests measure intelligence, but not perfectly. For example, someone who makes a lucky guess on a multiple choice IQ test will get a higher score even though they are not more intelligent than someone who makes an unlucky guess.
Imagine a world where intelligence is entirely genetic. Two identical twins take an IQ test, one makes some lucky guesses, the other is tired, and they end up with a score difference of 5 points.
Then some random unrelated people take the test and they get the 5 point difference plus an extra 20 point difference from genuinely having different IQs. This gets even harder when trying to measure fuzzier constructs like criminality. Suppose someone does a twin study on criminality and their outcome is whether a twin was ever convicted of a felony.
This depends partly on whether the twin is actually the sort of person with criminal tendencies — but also partly on whether a policeman happened to be in the area to catch them, whether their lawyer happened to be good enough to get them off, whether their judge was feeling merciful that day, et cetera.
Imagine a world where criminality is entirely genetic. Identical Twin A becomes a small-time cocaine dealer in a back alley in West Philly, sells to an undercover cop, and ends up in jail. Riemann and Kandler obsessively collect every possible measurement of personality — self-report, other-report, multiple different tests — and average them out to get an unusually accurate and low-noise estimate of the personality of the twins in their study.
So it looks like much of the non-shared environmental variation in traditional studies of personality was just error.ARGUMENTATIVE ESSAY RUBRIC GRADE 7 Criteria Level 4: Exceeding Standards Level 3: Meeting Standards Level 2: Approaching Standards Level 1: Below Standards Focus & Structure Essay maintains a clear, relevant and Microsoft Word - 7th Grade Essay schwenkreis.com Author.
