Geneenvironment correlation

Gene-environment correlation further adds to the complexity of interplay between genes and environment. Gene-environment correlation arises when a person's genotype is correlated with the environment that they are exposed to. For example, sociable parents not only endow their children with genes but also provide an environment that encourages greater sociability in their children (passive gene-environment correlation). Moreover, positive gene-environment correlation would result where a sociable child actively seeks out more situations where socializing occurs (active gene-environment correlation) or where he or she evokes friendly responses in others (evocative gene-environment correlation).
