  1. MAINTENANCE OF GENETIC VARIATION IN HUMAN PERSONALITY: TESTING EVOLUTIONARY MODELS BY ESTIMATING HERITABILITY DUE TO COMMON CAUSAL VARIANTS AND INVESTIGATING THE EFFECT OF DISTANT INBREEDING Volume 66, Issue 10, 3238–3251, Article first published online: 21 May 2012

In Verweij et al. (2012), there is a typographical error in Table 1. The heading of the 3rd column in Table 1 should read ‘% VA due to common variants (MAF > .01)’. The published version reads ‘… (MAF > .1)’. The correct table is below:

  1. VA additive genetic variation; VNA: nonadditive genetic variation; MAF: minor allele frequency

  2. a

    Previous research strongly suggests a highly polygenic basis to personality (Verweij et al. 2010)

  3. b

    VNA/VG is expected to be fairly low under neutrality (Hill et al. 2008), though no specific level can be predicted; ‘higher’ predicted levels are in comparison this baseline

  4. c

    Yes under directional selection, no under stabilising selection

  5. d

    These predictions appear to approximately generalise to overdominance in general (Burger 2000)

  6. e

    Inbreeding is expected to decrease fitness, but does not necessarily affect the trait in question
