Scientists have found genetic links between personality traits and psychiatric diseases

Scientists have identified genetic links between a set of psychological factors known as ‘the big five’ personality traits – extraversion, neuroticism, agreeableness, conscientiousness, and openness to experience – and say they could also influence risk factors for certain psychiatric disorders.While it has already been established that personality is partly linked to genetics, recent genome-wide association studies like this will allow researchers to take a closer look at which parts of our DNA code affect certain aspects of our character.
