Happily ever after

Great podcast over at the Maudsley. My favourite bits:

  • Robert Plomin: “… you can’t come up with a personality scale that doesn’t show about 30% heritability… but it isn’t enough to show it’s all determined. […] I don’t really think the genetics of this is all that relevant myself.”
    Robin Murray, slightly taken aback: “Well this is… is a first.”
  • Rachel Perkins: “But actually I have to say that… it always strikes me as the last resort that you go to, you know… survival value for primitive man seems to be when we run out of explanatory ideas.”
